Erosion Control Funding Programme (ECFP)

There won’t be any more ECFP land treatment funding rounds, but this doesn’t affect existing grants. Find out how to make a claim for payment for your ECFP land treatment grant.

No more grants

The 2018 ECFP land treatment funding round was successful with $7.6 million being approved across 64 grants. At the end of November 2018, only $2.12 million in funding remained. That amount has been allocated solely to the ECFP Community Projects Programme.

There will be no further ECFP land treatment funding rounds under the ECFP.

However, funding applications that would previously have sought ECFP land treatments funding can consider applying for funding under the One Billion Trees Programme.

If you have an existing ECFP land treatment grant

For those who have an existing ECFP land treatment grant, up to 50% of the grant value can be paid on signing your grant agreement, before planting or fencing is complete.
