Calor Rural Communities Fund - reopens March 2019

Calor Rural Community Fund offers rural off grid communities the chance to gain funding for projects that will improve local life.

Applications for funding are divided into three categories: £1,000, £2,500 and £5,000. There are 5 x £5,000 grants, 6 x £2,500 grants and 10 x £1,000 grants available to off-grid community projects. Funding applied for must equate to 50% or more of the total project cost.

Winners from each category are carefully selected following a three-stage process:

  • Organisations must first submit a proposal application and which will be screened by Calor to check that it has met the eligibility criteria,
  • The general public will vote for the application that they would like to see win a grant. Applications with the highest number of votes from each grant category at the end of the voting period will be deemed as finalists, and
  • The winners from each grant category will selected by an independent panel of judges with the highest score based on a number of criteria.

Projects supported can be anything from schools, community centres, village halls and sporting venues to youth clubs and scout groups, or even initiatives to support the elderly.

The Fund re-opens on the 20th March 2019 – interested groups should register their details to receive a notification with funding dates for 2019.
