Applications can be for anything from �500 to �10,000 and can come from voluntary organisations, schools, businesses, individuals and town and parish councils.
The deadline is August 23 and the grants are available from the Norfolk Coast Partnership. The money has come from Natural England.
Kate Dougan, of the partnership, said: “The projects must be of benefit to the environment and the public and be sustainable. We want to help fund projects which will not need more funding in the future.”
Projects will also have to be within or of benefit to the designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This area includes areas between Sea Palling and Winterton around Sandringham and a coastal strip from Heacham to Bacton.

The fund has been in existence for about five years and previous recipients include North Norfolk Astronomy Society, to undertake light pollution surveys, Paston Heritage Society, to produce a guidebook to the Paston area with information about the famous Paston family, and the Glaven Valley Conservation Group, which received a grant to buy electric fencing which could be shared among different landowners to support grazing practices to conserve grassland.
