CWM Community and Environmental Fund Application

Making Your Grant Application

To apply for a grant, you will need to complete an online application using the internet. This has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible.

We suggest that you follow the instructions below before starting your online application. This should reduce the amount of time you will need to spend on the internet, as most of your preparation can be done in advance.

First download the following documents and save them to your computer:

Application form questions and guidance
Contributing third party guidance
Conditions for funding land and buildings

Next, read through the application form questions so that you can plan your answers. We have provided guidance next to each question to help you.

Useful tip: If you prepare longer answers using Microsoft Word, you can then cut and paste them into the online application form.

You will be able to work on your online application, save it securely whilst work is in progress and return to it as often as required.


Within the online application, you will be asked to upload up to 3 digital photos of the existing project site. These should be JPEG files, each no larger than 1 Megabyte (1MB). The online application provides full guidance on how to upload your photos.

Submitting your online application

After you have completed your online application, you will be able to check through your answers before submitting it. Once your application has been submitted, you will receive an automatic email acknowledgement from us.
