Through our Clyde wind farm, we provide around £700,000 per year to community and business development projects in South Lanarkshire. Over the life of the fund we expect to invest £17.5 million in local projects.

The community fund

The community fund is for projects within the Clyde wind farm area, up to around 15km from the wind farm near Abington. 
It is split into two parts:

  • The small grant scheme - grants of less than £5,000 and up to 100% of total 'eligible' costs
  • The community fund - grants over £5,000 and up to 90% of total 'eligible' costs. There is no upper limit.

The Development Fund

The development fund is for projects across the whole South Lanarkshire area. Projects should focus on economic/business development or environmental issues. 

The fund can meet up to 50% of total 'eligible' costs up to a maximum grant of £25,000.
