The funding is open to community groups, charities, parish and town councils and educational establishments including schools. Among projects previously funded is the Holt Community Centre which was awarded a grant of �4,500 towards the costs of installing 20 photovoltaic panels on the Community Centre roof. The grant is reducing the centre's carbon footprint while also assisting its financial sustainability through reduced energy bills.
Fund grants officer Clive Rayner said: 'We are looking for communities to come forward with exciting projects which will make a real difference to lives. We have set up a simple outline proposal application process so that people can get an early indication about whether their idea is right for the fund.'
