Woods into Management Forestry Innovation Funds Reopen for 2023

Energy, Environment & Climate

15 March 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

New funding is available for forestry businesses, conservation organisations, and local authorities in England to increase the area of woodland in active management.

The Woods into Management (WiM) Forestry Innovation Funds aim to restore England’s vulnerable woodland habitats, help woodlands adapt to a changing climate, and recover from the impacts of pests and diseases.

Through the programme, grant funding is available to stimulate the development and testing of new ideas that can help improve the ecological condition of woodlands, and their resilience to climate change, via increased demand for wood and enhanced levels of woodland management.

The fund will also support projects which will develop new technologies and working practices to help homegrown timber production meet domestic and international demand.

Via a series of funds, applicants in the forestry and associated sectors, as well as local authorities, will be invited to submit multi-year proposals spanning up to two financial years (ending by March 2025). Proposals may be costed to a maximum of £100,000 per year.

The deadline for applications to be submitted is 15 May 2023 (23:55 BST).


How To Apply

The 2023 application deadline for all strands is 15 May 2023 (23:55 BST).

Applications are made online.
