Projects that can apply for funding could be anything from redecorating community centres or village halls; to new equipment for youth clubs, sports teams or scout groups; etc.
Projects will be subject to a popular vote. Projects that receive the most votes on Calor Rural Community Fund website will be shortlisted then reviewed by a panel of judges, who will select the winning projects for funding.
In 2018 Calor is offering three levels of funding to suit projects of different sizes:
- Up to £1,000
- Up to £2,500

The 20 projects in the £1,000 category and the 10 projects in both the £2,500 and £5,000 with the most votes will go through to the finals.
