The Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund
Established by Defra and the Environment Agency, The Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund works to support HM Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan, green finance strategy, and 10 point plan for a ‘green industrial revolution’. It aims to stimulate private investment and market-based mechanisms that improve and safeguard our domestic natural environment by helping projects get ready for investment. The £10 million fund provides grants of up to £100,000 to local authorities, businesses, environmental groups and other authorities to help them develop nature projects in England through which they can attract private investment.
