Applications: stage 1

The application process

There are two application rounds per year, when grants ranging from £1,000 to £15,000 are awarded to projects that:

  1. Improve or enhance the social, built or natural environment, public space, facility or building for leisure or entertainment
  2. Improve or enhance buildings or structures of religious, historical or architectural interest.

To qualify for funding, projects need to meet the following criteria:

  • Located within 10 miles of a landfill site
  • Located within 3 miles of a CEMEX site
  • Consider the environment in all aspects
  • May be a showcase for other projects by demonstrating innovation and/or inspiration
  • Strengthen relations with local CEMEX operations
  • Grant to cover total project costs, although part funding may be considered

The application process is a two-stage process:

A stage one form has to be completed and processed to establish if the project complies with the Fund’s priorities and guidelines. Applicants who pass this stage successfully will be shortlisted for stage two, and invited to submit a full application.

Stage 1

Expression of Interest form
Assessment by CEMEX Community Fund
Successful applicants are invited to stage 2

Stage 2

Completion of full application form
Assessment by CEMEX Community Fund
Successful applicants are invited to Stage 3 – Project Starts

Projects that successfully pass the second stage of the application and are offered a grant, will be required to become an Environmental Body with the Landfill Communities Fund Regulatory Body, ENTRUST. This involves a fee of £100, which may under some circumstances be requested in the grant. Projects must also be registered with ENTRUST.

During the implementation phase, we work in partnership and community projects will be monitored. A full report is to be submitted on project completion. You can check your proximity to CEMEX sites here: Click here for full application guidelines
