Countryside Conservation Funding Scheme

A Countryside Conservation Funding Scheme (CCFS) will be established under the Countryside Conservation Office which provides financial support to non-governmental organisations and villagers for organising diverse and innovative conservation activities or projects based on an interactive and co-operative approach, including the Nature Conservation Management Agreement Scheme. To cater for the need for sustainable and holistic conservation efforts in Hong Kong’s rural countryside, which covers a wide spectrum of areas ranging from natural environments/habitats, built heritage (particularly the non-graded historic buildings), cultural and historical assets, etc., the CCFS provides a dedicated funding support for countryside conservation projects covering ecological conservation, and revitalisation of architectural and cultural aspects.
