Speaking today, Pat Fitzgerald, Bord na Móna, said; We established the community gain scheme in 2014 thanks to the help and cooperation of the community. An annual fund, based on the installed capacity of the windfarm, is established and applications are sought from clubs, associations, and other such groups in the locality for support for various community-based initiatives and improvement projects. The fund amounts to €84,000 per annum and I would like to encourage any local groups to make an application to the scheme.Bord na Móna administers each scheme and an awards committee is drawn from the local communities. This committee decides which projects are granted financial support. The funding has benefited schools, sports clubs, general amenity, social initiatives, as well as community facilities.
