Community Benefits Fund
The Community Benefits Fund has been developed in order to share the benefits of Lancaster University Wind Turbine with the local community.
The fund offers grants to local community groups to fund community and environmental projects in Lancaster District (south and east of the River Lune) and has up to £20,000 available for its sixth round of funding (2018-19).
Applications for grants will be evaluated, and awards made by the Community Benefits Fund Steering Group, which is comprised of representatives from Local Parish Councils and Lancaster University.
