Applications are now open
Applications for round 2 of the Greater Manchester Green Spaces Fund are now open until noon on Friday 27th January 2023.
The £2.6m fund is open to all residents of Greater Manchester, supporting community-led projects that increase the amount and quality of accessible, nature-rich green space in the city region, particularly in the areas where people need it most.
The documents below should be used to help shape your application - please take the time to read the guidance for applicants, frequently asked questions and terms & conditions before you apply. There are also templates to help you write your application offline and plan your project activities and costs, alongside a useful introductory webinar for potential applicants.
We advise that you download the application form document and use it to prepare your application offline, before copying your answers across to the online application form at the bottom of this page when you are ready to submit. You can also contact one of our Green Spaces Fund Advisors for help with your application - see below for further details.
