The Nature for Climate Peatland Grant Scheme (NCPGS) provides funding to restore peatlands in the uplands and lowlands of England. It is a competitive grant scheme that will run until 2025.
The scheme is open to environmental groups, local authorities, charities, public bodies, individual landowners and organisations.
Natural England is looking for landscape scale applications that work to restore the whole hydrological unit of a peatland. This is likely to involve a number of sites and landowners, so applications from partnerships are encouraged.
Two types of grant are available:
- restoration grant - the first round for applications is closed, but the second round will open for applications early in 2022 at a date to be confirmed
- discovery grant - the first round is open for applications from 7 July 2021 to 1 September 2021
