Not-for-profit organisations in the UK can apply now for grants to support projects that contribute to understanding and addressing the causes and effects of fuel poverty.
The Eaga Charitable Trust gives priority to funding proposals that have the potential to inform or influence national perceptions and policies and have a wide geographic focus.
Grants of between £2,500 and £25,000 are available for work based in the UK and other European Union countries. The Trust strongly encourages applicants to seek co-funding of projects wherever possible.
There is no minimum or maximum duration of grant, although typically projects span between one and three years.
Grants are available under the following categories:
• Fuel poverty and rural communities.
• Fuel poverty and health and wellbeing.
• Fuel poverty and climate change and sustainability.
• Fuel poverty and household vulnerability. 
Applications should consist of one or more of the following elements:
• Rigorous academic and/or public policy-related research.
• Robustly evaluated action projects which either build on existing proven models or offer innovative new models with the aim of achieving population-based effective interventions.
• Dissemination and promotion of proven good practice, for example through appropriate workforce interventions, social media, toolkits including online tools and workshops including online congresses and webinars.
• Technical support for, including scoping of, novel and innovative pilots and demonstration projects and the evaluation of them.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 1 June 2015.
Grant awards will be made by mid July 2015.
