Community groups and organisations in the East Wolds and Coastal Ward are being invited to apply for grants from the Lissett Wind Farm Community Fund.
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 fund receives an annual donation of over £82,000 from the wind farm’s operating company, Ventient and 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.
Councillor Jane Evison, chair of the Lissett Wind Farm Community Fund said: “Many local groups and organisations have taken advantage of this funding in the past and used it to support a wide range of projects from local community buildings to sports clubs and youth groups.
“Don’t miss the opportunity to access funding that can make a difference in your community.”
The closing date for applications to the fund is 30 April, 2019.
