The North Norfolk Rural Business and Communities Grant Programme is available until March 2025. It is designed for community groups that need funding to support their work and advice on applying for funding. 

This investment helps community groups:

  • improve infrastructure
  • develop cultural, historic or heritage buildings or spaces
  • improve conditions to allow for better volunteering opportunities or to empower social action  

This programme will help community groups develop their application and receive independent advice from a specialist advisor through the Norfolk County Council (NCC) Growth Hub team. The team will work with your group to help understand the required outcomes and develop your evidence. 

Grant details

All these services are free. Grants range from £10,000 to £50,000 and are offered at a 75% intervention rate. Applicants can also apply for more significant projects, but the size of the grant will be capped at £50,000.

All projects must have match funding and any required permissions in place before applying.


All projects must be completed by December 2024 and claimed retrospectively by March 2025.  

Who can apply

Community groups, community interest companies and charities.

How to apply

Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Community groups interested in this funding are encouraged to read the guidance and apply through the Growth Hub at Norfolk County Council.
