Grants are typically about £500.

The Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) is money provided by Defra, the government department responsible for policy and regulations on the environment, food and rural affairs, to promote a wide range of sustainable projects that support their conservation objectives of AONBs and National Parks.

The Amenity and Accessibility Fund (AAF) has been set up by EDF Energy to help people enjoy and improve their local environment in the AONB along the Suffolk coast.

Other grants are also available to communities, schools and groups in the AONB.
