The fund is now open for applications for 2022-23.

The Fund is to assist charities, community interest companies, parish councils, voluntary groups and other not for profit organisations who wish to deliver community based carbon reduction projects that are expemplary and forward thinking in line with our ambitions to Create the Greenest County.

The fund will now support up to 50% of costs (up to a maximum of £2,000) for voluntary and community groups who wish to deliver community based carbon reduction projects, that are ‘visionary’ and in line with the Greenest County mission.

The Green Suffolk Fund only has limited resources each financial year and we will deal with applications as they come in to us so do contact us early on if you are considering submitting an application.

If you are developing an idea please contact Groundwork East for further information and support on or 01473 350370.
