The Hinkley Point C Community Fund Open Grants Programme is for VCSE organisations seeking funding for projects to mitigate the impacts of Hinkley Point C or access its opportunities. There are two different processes depending on whether you are seeking funding for projects of under £50,000 or over £50,000.
Please see www.hpcfunds.co.uk for more information on eligibility criteria and other frequently asked questions.
If the cost of your project or activity is £5,000 or less and your annual turnover is less than £100,000 it may be better suited to a different grants programme. Please return to www.hpcfunds.co.uk for more information.
If you are seeking funding for less than £50,000 there is a one stage application process which consists of an online form.
In order for us to support you in developing your application we ask that you first submit a short statement outlining your project or idea and the impact of Hinkley Point C that you are mitigating; or the opportunities you hope to access. Once we have reviewed this we will contact you and if we feel that it meets the criteria of the fund we will send you a link to a full application form and the guidance notes.
Click here to register. Once you have registered the link to the summary form will be emailed to you.
This is an ongoing programme with decisions on full applications made quarterly. The next deadline is Wednesday 29 March.
If you would like to discuss your project or idea with us please contact Amelia Thompson, Senior Programmes Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 01749 344949
