The Tap Water Awards programme aims to help projects that significantly reduce our reliance on single-use plastics and the amount of plastic waste the UK generates. This could be through the development of new solutions to replace pre-existing systems that rely on plastic, promotion of tap water, or other related themes. Projects can have a community, local or national impact.

Voluntary and community groups, schools, and parish and town councils can apply for grants between £300 and £5,000. This is a rolling programme there are no deadlines.
