Scheme background The Government has committed more than 750 million to a Nature for Climate Fund, including for peat restoration and tree planting programmes. As part of this, Natural England (NE) is delivering the Nature for Climate Peatland Grant Scheme (NCPGS). This competitive scheme will run from 2021 to 2025. The NCPGS aims to: - set 35,000 ha of degraded peatland in England on a path to restoration by March 2025 - reduce emissions from peat by 9 million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent by 2050, with continued reductions after that These targets are linked to the England Peat Action Plan. Peatland restoration will also deliver wider environmental and social benefits. It will: contribute to the Nature Recovery Network (NRN); enhance ecosystems and biodiversity; improve water quality; provide natural flood management; protect the historic environment; give opportunities for people to connect with nature. The NCPGS includes the Restoration Grant and the Discovery Grant. This project is for Round 2 of the Restoration Grant which will fund peatland restoration and its associated eligible costs. The Restoration Grant is a multi-year grant and funds are intended for projects where there is a complete programme of restoration works identified for at least the first year of the agreement. The Restoration Grant provides up to 75% of total project costs.
