Low Carbon Lake District Grants

As UK businesses seek to recover from the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak, they also need to balance efforts with the challenges presented by climate change.

For SMEs based in the Lake District, help is at hand.

Cumbria builds back better for a greener future

The Lake District Foundation, with support from the Northern Powerhouse and European Regional Development Fund, are offering grants to reduce the carbon footprint of Lake District based businesses.

A total grant pot of £600k is available and qualifying businesses will be awarded up to 60% of their project costs, on the provision that projects will be completed by March 2023.

The standard project cost should be below £25k (before VAT), but bigger projects may be accepted with added procurement rules and restrictions.

State aid rules will apply and applications will be reviewed by an independent expert panel.
