The £2.6m Greater Manchester Green Spaces Fund supports 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 Greater Manchester Green Spaces Fund aims to help tackle inequalities in access to green spaces across the city-region and benefit communities in greatest need. The fund will be used to support projects which will increase citizens’ access to quality green spaces, by either creating new accessible green spaces or improving spaces by making physical enhancements for nature and people.
Further updates will be made available on the Greater Manchester Environment Fund website here.
