Call For Local Authority In Wicklow To Apply For Biodiversity Funding

The 2022 Local Biodiversity Action Fund has opened to applications from local authorities.

The fund increased to €1.5 million in 2022 and supports locally-led projects that align with actions under the National Biodiversity Action Plan.

First launched in 2018, the fund offers funding to assist local authorities in the implementation of actions in the National Biodiversity Action Plan. 

This funding stream enables them to develop projects that address biodiversity loss in their localities by helping to create new habitats, restoring existing ones and by tackling invasive alien species.
Funding to this scheme has increased by 200% since 2019.

The funding will be made available, in line with a grant application and award process, to local authorities’ biodiversity officers.
