Funding to understand and address fuel poverty

The EAGA Trust provides financial support for work that contributes to understanding and addressing the causes and effects of fuel poverty. Grants available are between £2,500 and £25,000 and most grants last between two and three years.

During 2016 priority will be given to projects that address:

  • Fuel poverty and health and wellbeing
  • Fuel poverty policies and energy systems
  • Low-carbon policies, behaviours and practices
  • Fuel poverty and rural communities.

The Trust also gives priority to funding proposals that have the potential to inform or influence national perceptions and policies and have a wide geographic focus. A project that operates at a local level will only be considered for a grant if it: clearly demonstrates innovation; identifies the policy relevance of the project; has wide applicability; and has well developed evaluation and dissemination plans.

The next application deadline is 28th July 2017.
