The Lincolnshire Wolds Grant Scheme is NOW OPEN for applications.

If you have a project idea that you’d like help, advice and possible grant aid for, then please get in touch. Projects that deliver improvements and enhancements for landscape, conservation, access, information and business within the Lincolnshire Wolds are eligible to receive up to 80% support.   

Applications are open to businesses, community and voluntary groups and public sector organisations with a bank account and an e-mail account. We are offering help in funding opportunities for projects that can deliver actions from the Lincolnshire Wolds AONB Management Plan, with potential applicants advised to contact the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service early to guide them through the process.

All projects must be within the Lincolnshire Wolds National Landscape, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and must be completed, with the paperwork signed off, by the end of February 2025 in order to meet the end of financial year deadlines.

Please see below for guidance and an application form – do not hesitate to contact us for advice and support with your potential project.
