Windfarm grants in Barnsley : VAB News

Two areas of Barnsley, one in the west around Penistone, one in the east around Great Houghton, are eligible for grants from local windfarms for community activities.

South Yorkshire's Community Foundation gives grants from two wind farm funds across the Borough. They have deadlines approaching:

Park Spring - East of Barnsley gives grants up to 10,000. The next deadline for applications is 4th April 2017.

Blackstone Edge to the West of Barnsley has a small grant scheme of 1,000 - 5,000 and one for major projects up to 25,000. There will be a deadline for this one announced shortly.

You need to check the details for each scheme, as they make grants only in their local areas, and there are different rules on eligibility, priorities etc. so make sure you fit. If you don't, the Foundation's Community Grant (up to 5,000) makes grants anywhere in the county. Its next deadline is 16th May 2017.

Check the website for details of all these funds www.sycf.org.uk/apply/
