The annual Crook Hill Community Benefit Fund is now open for this year’s applications.
Community projects located within a 5km radius of the Crook Hill wind farm, crossing the border of Rossendale and Rochdale, will be eligible for funding, and a panel of local people will decide which applications the fund should support.
The construction of the 11-turbine Crook Hill Wind Farm was completed in 2015, with the development managers, Vantage Infrastructure, donating £35,000 on an annual basis for the operational life of the project, as the Crook Hill Community Benefit Fund.
The fund distributes £35,000 annually over the 20–25-year lifetime of the project, administered by national charity GrantScape.
There is a single application round each year and groups can apply for grants between £250 and £10,000.
The next closing date is 16 February 2022. Decisions will be announced in mid-May 2022.
