United Kingdom: Dunmore Community Benefit Fund
The Dunmore Community Benefit Fund will be administered on behalf of Dunmore Wind Farm by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland. This local community fund has been set up by Dunmore Wind Farm to ensure that wind farms, whilst having obvious environmental benefits, also provide significant social and economic benefits to the local community.
Funding will be available to local community projects that are planned and run for the benefit of the local population within the designated catchment area. Applicant organizations must be located in this area.
The fund welcomes applications from constituted community and voluntary groups that address the following areas:
