North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) are encouraging organisations and community groups located within a 10-mile radius of Augean Plc sites (in King’s Cliffe and Thornhaugh) to come forward and apply for grant funding.

Revenue funding is available up to £10,000 for project costs such as administration costs, running costs and feasibility studies. Capital funding is available up to £5,000 for one-off expenses including equipment purchases, defibrillators, benches and park equipment.

The Augean Revenue and Small Capital Grants Fund (previously known as the ENRMF Fund) was set up as part of the planning consent for the East Northants Resource Management Facility. It aims to support any organisation with a constitution/charitable status that directly benefits the community within a 10-mile radius of the sites.

Applications for funding will open on 1 April 2023. Before applying, projects and organisations should check online they are situated within the radius.

Those within 10-mile radius of the ENRMF site are eligible to apply, but with a preference to applications from within a 5-mile radius.

The deadline for applications is 12 May and applications can be made online via NNC’s website.
