Grants are available to help co fund your community fibre.  For example, some communities have used grants from wind farms, Calor Gas, BT Group and also the Government.
In November, the Government launched a Gigabit Voucher Scheme to give grants of up to £3,000 for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) to get ultrafast broadband. IF you're an SME or if there's one in your community, see if you're eligible to apply.
BT Group has dedicated £2m to award as grants to communities with a school to enable super-fast access in the classroom as well as at home and in the community.  Communities in the UK not covered by fibre broadband rollout plans can apply for a grant to cover three quarters of the cost of the new fibre infrastructure, up to £30,000, if that new infrastructure serves the local school and is delivered by Openreach. So, for example, if the cost for a so called 'gap-funded' solution that serves a school has been quoted as £40,000, the community would pay £10,000 and £30,000 would be funded from the grant.
