Green Living Fund Guidance


Information regarding voting support can be found here.



The Green Living Fund is a new opportunity for community groups to apply for a grant to make a positive difference around climate change and cost of living.

Proposals should fit with at least one of the criteria listed below, and also demonstrate how it will help local residents with the cost of living.

  • Energy - reducing consumption, promoting efficiency
  • Transport - encouraging active travel, decarbonising transport
  • Waste - reduce, reuse and recycle
  • Resilience  - improving greenspace, biodiversity, local food growing
  • Engagement - increasing public awareness and engaging communities

The proposals will then be screened by an expert panel to confirm feasibility before the proposals go forward to the public voting stage. Members of the local community will then choose which proposals will receive funding.



Perth & Kinross is split into seven localities as below. Please identify the locality in which your project is taking place. You can identify the ward and locality you live in by using our Postcode Checker. Each locality covers one to three council wards and the residents of those localities will make the final decision on who receives funding. The total funds available for each locality, along with their respective council wards are detailed below.
