The application round for the 2019/20 Garreg Lwyd Hill Windfarm Community Benefit Fund is OPEN!

Garreg Lwyd Hill Wind Farm funds local community projects every year during the lifetime of the wind farm

The fund is managed by a Community Fund Panel made up of representatives from the local community councils. The fund is administered by PAVO.

Applications are invited from groups and projects which benefit the communities living in the following community council areas:

  • Beguildy
  • Bettws y Crwyn
  • Kerry
  • Llanbister
  • Llanbadarn Fynydd

Consideration may be given to an application from outside these areas at the discretion of the fund panel but only if it can be shown that such an application provides a demonstrable benefit to those communities within the area of benefit.

To apply for a grant community groups or organisations must be properly constituted. You do not need to be a registered charity, but you must be able to demonstrate community benefit. The fund welcomes applications from organisations that make a difference across a range of areas including:

  • community buildings - projects which maintain and develop buildings being used and run by the community, especially projects which help ensure their sustainability for the future
