Small grants for implementing Regenerative projects in Camps and Settlements

Up to five grants between GBP £5,000 to £7,000 available

Re-Alliance are developing a series of guidelines around regenerative responses in camps and settlements. As part of this we are looking to fund up to five new action research projects to inform our materials.

Re-Alliance is exploring the themes above (camp design; shelters; food growing; water; community), we are already running pilot projects in the areas of WASH, such as composting toilets, and in food growing such as urban agriculture and community composting. For this round of funding we are looking specifically for partners to pilot innovative approaches in one or more of the areas outlined below:

1. Bio-intensive Food Production

2. Regenerative Shelters

3. Community-Scale Regenerative Energy

4. Projects with a focus on social cohesion

5. Projects with a focus on regenerative livelihoods 

6. Projects with a focus on emergency and disaster contexts

We have funds to support up to 5 different pilots at this stage for amounts between £5,000 to £7,000. We have limited funds and will prioritise projects that are the most cost effective.

Projects should be designed to last between six months and one year and applications should be submitted by completing a short form ( by 31st July 2023. All applications should include a mentor from a local university or someone who has broad international experience of regenerative principles within your chosen area, to help inform and guide the action research and monitor results.

If you are interested in bidding for one of the nine pilot funds, or acting as an informed mentor/researcher on one of the projects, we invite you to watch the information session from a previous funding round below.

As these pilot projects will be informing guidelines and educational materials that we are producing, we will ask successful applicants to send us photos, videos, and a set format of reporting to help us communicate the success of these techniques, and help others learn from these. We may continue to work with you on gathering information about the impacts of this project after it has been completed, which will be funded separately.

Communication and engagement with Re-Alliance must be done in English, or another language but translated into English.

Successful applicants must have an organisational bank account, or be working with an organisational fiscal sponsor.

We invite applications from organisations and groups who are implementing regenerative projects in the above areas. These may be new ideas, or ideas you have seen elsewhere but tailored to your context.
