The Community Housing Fund can provide grants to groups looking to set up as a legal trust and help to kick-start development. It allows communities to bid directly for cash to develop their own housing and support affordable housing schemes.
The scheme can provide funding to cover pre-development and infrastructure costs.
Within Tendring, the council is working with a number of small community groups including Jaywick Sands and Great Oakley, Harwich and Brightlingsea.
