Cherry Tree Wind Farm established a long-term Community Benefit Fund (CBF). This commitment will ensure that $25,000 is made available to the local community each year, for the first 25 years of the operation of the wind farm. Details of the process to apply for the CBF can be found below.
Community Benefit Fund
The Cherry Tree Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund provides financial support for a range of community-based initiatives, projects and events that benefit local communities. The program aims to target a range of community needs including health and social welfare, safety, environment, education and youth, sport and recreation, culture, arts and economic development.
CTWF will consider funding locally run initiatives for Incorporated or Not for Profit Community groups, funds, projects/programs or facilities that are located within, or provide a direct benefit to, the community within a 15km radius of CTWF.
Applications open once per year, typically in July, and will only be accepted from the following townships and localities: Seymour, Yea, Tallarook, Trawool, Whiteheads Creek, Highlands, Ghin Ghin and Strath Creek.
