Omagh Forum in association with Greencoat Capital invites applications for funding for community based projects which must be within a 10km radius of Slieve Divena Wind Farm, near Ballygawley, County Tyrone.
Slieve Divena Wind Farm Community Fund was established by Greencoat with the intention of helping the communities neighbouring the wind farm to become more sustainable through the support of positive local initiatives and activities. The Fund seek to address current and emerging issues, needs and opportunities within communities, enriching lives and creating brighter possibilities for local residents.
The maximum award value is £3000 with the minimum value being £500. The suggested award value is neither a minimum nor a maximum, rather an indication of the scale of resources available annually.
The fund will prioritise applications from local community groups and organisations from within the area of benefit. However, applications from outside this area may be considered if a project directly addresses a current or prospective need / issue / opportunity of the communities nearest the wind farm.
