The funding is available to organisations that can help engage people and communities across Britain with information about how to get and use smart meters. It is especially aimed at projects that can reach those who may face barriers to getting a smart meter.
There are currently two funding streams, each targeting a specific audience:
- Grants for organisations reaching people who are offline. The total amount of funding requested should be between £15,000 and £25,000.
- Grants for organisations reaching people on a low income. The total amount of funding requested should be between £7,500 and £10,000.
