How is PONT Funded?

Current PONT activity is almost entirely funded through Welsh Government Core Funding. The grant funding period is 1 October 2015 to 30 September 2018.

PONT staff work in collaboration with farmers, organisations and local communities to seek funding to establish sustainable grazing solutions to address local challenges and benefit nature. This might be using grazing to open up overgrown areas to enable greater access, to support local food initiatives or to work with the Fire Service to help reduce fire risk.

PONT is currently a partner in a number of grant applications as well as supporting delivery of current projects such as the Big Lottery Funded Cwlwm Project, led by Menter Mon.

PONT is also developing its Advisory and Training services so that it is in a position to develop viable business options beyond September 2018.
