The Resource Action Fund is an £18 million fund, provided by Defra to support resource efficiency projects, with the goal of diverting, reducing, and better managing, waste.
WRAP has launched this funding to support new projects in England, aimed at resource efficiency. Funded by Defra, the Resource Action Fund will support key policy outcomes in the areas of food, plastics, textiles, recycling infrastructure and litter. It will do this through a variety of mechanisms including large and small-scale grants, and through expert support in the areas of food and non-household municipal recycling.
There are large scale and small scale grants with variable application periods.
There is an Expert support programme to accompany the scheme which is under development.
