The Derbyshire Environmental Trust (DET) is repeating its own funding scheme in 2020/21. In view of the Coronavirus pandemic there is a preference for awarding a larger number of small to medium sized grants, thereby benefiting a greater number of organisations, rather than one or two larger awards. The Scheme has operated annually since 2016/17 and a decision about future years will be made in due course. Applications will be considered from not-for-profit community/environmental organisations and parish/town councils. The minimum grant request of £2,500, maximum of £15,000. Examples of the type of project that would be eligible include the provision, maintenance and repair of: children's play areas, skate parks, Multi Use Games Areas, sports fields and other recreational facilities, nature reserves, footpaths/bridleways, community centres/village halls.
