Linlithgow, Lewes, Totnes and Taunton are just four of the Transition initiatives we know of who have held or are due to hold Open Eco-Homes events. If you are a Transition group based in England and are planning to hold such an event event, then you could apply for funding from £500 up to £20,000 (England-wide / Deadline for applications, 30 Sept 2013).
Here’s more information from the Green Open Homes network:
The new Green Open Homes network supports low carbon open homes events across the country with resources, advice and a new online hub: greenopenhomes.net. We want to help more local groups and organisations to show off home energy saving improvements and inspire their neighbours to act.
We’ve launched a competition for groups anywhere in England who want to run a green open homes event in their neighbourhood. You could win from £500 to £20,000 of funding along with expert advice and support for your event!
Your event will also feature on our national website, and you’ll get your own page where you can list all the details and information that your visitors will need.

Funding will be allocated to winning entries from a pot on a first come first served basis, and events need to take place before the end of May 2014. The application deadline for the first funding round is 30 September, but don’t worry if you need a bit longer to apply – we’ll announce another round of winners on 20 December.
Green Open Homes is a national network run by the Centre for Sustainable Energy in partnership with Bristol Green Doors.
