Breckland Council Match Funding
Applications can be made at any time when the Fund is open. Please note, this funding stream is only planned to run until March 2019.
We will be carrying out some updates and improvements to our website and online systems – to make sure that doesn’t affect applications, we will be closing all our Funds temporarily from 5pm on 24 August and re-opening week commencing 3 September.
If you have already started an online application and will be working on it through this period you will not be affected.
