The Treorchy Wind Fund is a community fund supported by the Maerdy Wind Farm located between Maerdy and Treorchy.

30 x £500 grants
10 x £1,000 grants
5 x £2,500 grants
6 x £5,000 grants

As ususal the funding will be determined by a public vote, to take place Sunday 21st November 2021 at Treorchy & Cwmparc Boys and Girls Club. If Covid restrictions impede this, alternative arrangements will be announced.

The minimum number of votes required is reduced from ten to five this year to encourage applications
for the smaller grants.  Applying is easy; you can be an individual or a group. The forms are short and there are few restrictions on what the funds can be used for.


We are a community fund supporting projects around Treorchy in the Rhondda, with money provided by the nearby Maerdy Windfarm.

Grants range from £500 to £5,000.  We welcome applications from individuals and organisations.  No match funding is required.  Profit making organisations are admissible.


Funding rounds are every two years.  The next application deadline is 30th September 2019 for funding in 2020.

Determined by the Commnity

Funding for projects is determined by a public vote.  Every two years applications are invited, published on the website and then a public vote held for all residents of Treorchy Ward aged 15 and over.  The projects with the most votes receive the funding.
