How to apply for funding

The Ebico Trust is our way of staying at the forefront of the fight against fuel poverty in Britain. Any financial surplus made by our energy supply business goes straight to the Trust to support projects in fuel-poor neighbourhoods up and down the country.
We invite applications for funding for any of the following:

  1. You offer advice, guidance or education to communities where fuel poverty is endemic.
  2. Your organisation is in the business of making practical and sustainable improvements to the energy efficiency of your local housing stock.
  3. You are undertaking research into fuel poverty, its incidence and the methods by which it can be tackled in society.

The Trust reviews applications on a quarterly basis. Typically the grants we give out range between £20K and £60K.

The application process consists of two easy steps:

  1. Download an application form here in either PDF or Word format.
  2. You need to send a copy of your completed form via e-mail or post to:

The trustees meet on a quarterly basis, as a rough guidance this tends to be in February, May, August and November. The next meeting takes place on 14th February 2017. Your application needs to be with us via e-mail or in the post by 16th December 2016, in order to be considered for this next round of funding. We will let you know whether you have been successful within 2 weeks of the trustees meeting taking place.
