Grant funding of up to £1 million annually has been made available by central government for the Theddlethorpe GDF Community Partnership as it participates in the siting process for a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF).

The grants can be used to fund projects, schemes or initiatives that:

  • provide economic opportunities
  • enhance the natural and built environment, or
  • improve community wellbeing.

Within these three main principles, the Theddlethorpe GDF Community Partnership may also agree locally-specific criteria.

Funding can be used for the following:

  • Economic Development – For example, employment opportunities, job creation, skills development, education or training, promotion of local enterprise, long-term economic development or economic diversification
  • Natural or Built Environment – Including cultural and natural heritage, especially where economic benefits, for example through tourism, can be demonstrated
  • Community Wellbeing – For example, improvements to community facilities, enhancement of the quality of life or health and well-being of the community

You can apply for a small, medium or large grant:

  • Small grants – under £10,000
  • Medium grants – above £10,000 to £50,000
