So how does it work?
Rural communities with projects off the mains gas grid are eligible to apply for funding. Projects with successful applications will be published on our website where the public will then have their chance to show support to their favourites.
The projects that receive the highest scores in each funding category will then become finalists, and will go on to be reviewed by a panel of impartial judges who will score each project and select the winners.
We’ll reopen for applications in 2021. Please register your details to be kept up to date.
