New local community benefit fund launches!

Edintore Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund has launched! Applications are invited from groups, organisations and social enterprises for local projects with social or environmental benefits. To be eligible, groups must have a constitution (governing document) and a bank account in the group’s name with at least 2 unrelated signatories.

Priority will be given to applications that benefit people living within a 5 mile radius of Edintore Wind Farm (see map below). For more information, application forms and guidance notes are available on the Edintore page of the REAP website or from the REAP office. Forms can be emailed or posted out on request. 

The closing date for applications is 31st March 2017

Applications can be submitted to REAP at any time up to the deadline. At present it is expected that there will be 2 rounds of funding each year, in spring and autumn, but this may be subject to change.

If you’re not sure if your group or your idea is eligible, please get in touch via info@reapscotland.org.uk or by phoning 01542 888070. You are also welcome to come by the REAP office at 177 Mid Street in Keith, although it’s a good idea to phone ahead to ensure staff are there who can help you with your enquiry.
