Since 2008 CLASP has provided over £600,000 to North West local authorities and their partners for energy & emission reduction, climate adaptation, planning and skills projects.  

We were pleased to be able announce a new round of project funding support for innovative local authority led projects in 2012/13. We were very impressed by the quality of submissions and 5 projects were made funding offers.  4 projects were able to take this up and have now completed their activities.
