Low carbon advice for Community Infrastructure and Small Business Grants

Reference A1001.

The deadline for bids on this opportunity is Monday 5 June, 2023 at 9am.

We're inviting Expressions of Interest to quote for Low carbon advice for Community Infrastructure and Small Business Grants.

The contract is associated with using its funding allocations from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and Rural England Prosperity Fund (REPF), we're establishing two new grant schemes for Community Infrastructure Grant scheme and small rural businesses.

Grants will be available for capital investment only and whilst not exclusively for the implementation of carbon reduction measures, both schemes identify such investments as a priority. The grants will be for a maximum of £7,000 and up to 75% of the costs of an eligible community project and 50% for a business project.

We're particularly keen to encourage applications which support investment that improves the environmental and financial sustainability of community facilities/amenities and small businesses, through carbon reduction measures. Therefore to support this, we would like to be able to provide an advisory service that sits alongside the grant, to help those eligible and considering such projects to navigate towards deliverable solutions and help achieve their goals.

The contract will start on 22 June and end on 31 March, 2024. We may extend the opportunity for a further 1 year. The bidder who submits the Most Economically Advantageous Quotation will be awarded the contract.

Expressions of Interest and the Request for Quotation document must be uploaded on the Council's e-tendering portal. by Monday 5 June, 2023 at 9am.
