Community groups invited to apply for funding from Routh Wind Farm Community Fund

Fri, 31 Jan 2020

Community groups and organisations are being invited to apply for grants from the Routh Wind Farm Community fund.

The fund receives an annual donation from the wind farm's operating company, J Laing. An independent decision-making panel comprising of local representatives from parishes within the area, the wind farm owner and East Riding of Yorkshire Council will assess applications and award grants.

In the past, the fund has supported a wide range of projects from local community buildings to sports clubs and youth groups.

Applications can be made by organisations such as community groups, parish councils, schools and churches for projects that are of public benefit including charitable, educational and not-for-profit activities. The area of benefit of the fund is the East Riding of Yorkshire with a preference for projects in the proximity of the wind farm.

The closing date for applications to the main fund is Tuesday, 31 March 2020. There is also a year-round option to apply for smaller grants.

For further information, including the opportunity to join a drop-in session to support your application, in early March, or to apply for a grant online, go to eryc.link/routh-fund

The fund is managed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council's rural policy and partnerships team who can be contacted via email at ruralfunding@eastriding.gov.uk or by calling (01482) 391655.
