  • Grants for organisations reaching people who are on a low income. The total amount of funding requested should be between £7,500 and £10,000.
  • Grants for organisations reaching people who are carers. The total amount of funding requested should be £5,000.

Housing associations and local authorities are also eligible to apply.

The funding is being made available through the Smart Energy GB in Communities Fund and applications must be received by 12 noon on the 11th February 2022.
