Welcome to the Fife Environment Trust (FET) website.
FET is one of the key Funding Bodies in Fife awarding grants for community, environmental and heritage projects across the Kingdom to benefit the lives of those living in the vicinity of landfill sites and/or waste transfer stations.
The main areas of work (‘Objects’) that qualify for funding are as follows:
Object A: The reclamation, remediation, restoration or other operation on land to facilitate economic, social or environmental use.
Object B: Community based recycling, re-use and waste prevention projects.
Object C: To provide, maintain or improve a public park or other public amenity.
Object D: The conservation or promotion of biological diversity through the provision, conservation, restoration or enhancement of a natural habitat or the maintenance or recovery of a species in its natural habitat.
Object E: The maintenance, repair or restoration of a building, other structure or a site of archaeological interest which is a place of religious worship, or a site of historic or architectural or archaeological interest and is open to the public.
Priority is given to projects that demonstrate partnership working, community involvement and/or innovative use of amenities to enhance, maintain or introduce real community led social, economic or environmental improvements.
