About this Event

Does your community group need new equipment or funding for a much needed project?

Applications for 2021 Gullen Range Wind Farm Community Fund Funding Round are now open and they will close at 4pm on Friday, 16th April 2021. The Community Fund provides grants to projects or initiatives that benefit the community within 10km of the wind farm. The Community Fund is administered by Upper Lachlan Shire Council (ULSC). The Guidelines and application forms are available on the ULSC webpage here.

A FREE Gullen Range Wind Farm Community Fund workshop is being arranged to assist with preparing grant applications. The workshop is aimed at community groups who intend to apply and would like some guidance about how to prepare a grant application.

These workshops have been held for the past three years, coinciding with the period when applications to the fund are being received by Upper Lachlan Shire Council. Previous attendees have found the session very useful, but attendance is not compulsory. The workshop is conducted by our consultant independently of our involvement as part of the Section 355 committee that determines successful applicants.

More about the Community Fund

The Community Fund forms part of the Gullen Range Wind Farm Community Enhancement Program (or CEP), which can be downloaded here. Gullen Range Wind Farm sets aside $1,666 per turbine every year, which is split equally between the Community Fund and the Clean Energy Program. The $1,666 increases with inflation. In 2021, approximately $73,754 has been made available for the Community Fund.

The Community Fund Committee is coordinated by Upper Lachlan Shire Council under its Section 355 provisions. The Committee is responsible for assessing applications and awarding funds. Gullen Range Wind Farm has one member on this committee, which includes members of Upper Lachlan Shire Council, Goulburn Mulwaree Council and members of the community.
