A SLICE of up to £3million of national funding is on offer to community groups in Bromsgrove who can help improve the energy efficiency of the district’s homes.
The money is being made available by the Department of Energy and Climate Change and Bromsgrove District Council is looking for groups which could lead an efficiency project to come forward and support a countywide bid for funding.
The money is specifically for projects which support improvements to buildings.
Each group would need to engage with a minimum of 20 households, which would then be able to access a subsidy for certain types of insulation works.
Coun Michael Webb, responsible for environmental services on Bromsgrove District Council, said: “This is your opportunity to support people in your community to improve the energy efficiency of their homes, keep warmer and reduce their fuel bills.
“We need to act fast so we can submit the bids and get a slice of this cash to benefit Bromsgrove communities.”
The council is working with Worcestershire County Council and Act on Energy to co-ordinate the applications which have to be submitted by September.
An information session is being held at The Guild Hall in Worcester on Monday, August 19 from 5pm for anyone wanting more information. Interest should be registered at the event or by visiting www.surveymonkey.com/s/BXLC5YR before August 28.
