Thrive Renewables Community Benefit Fund

Community buildings, like village halls and community centres, can apply for grants of up to £4,000 from a fund set up by Thrive Renewables.

The fund is only currently open to community buildings in the immediate vicinity of a renewable energy project in which Thrive Renewables is invested, so first of all please read the guidance document and check here whether your building is in an eligible location and meets other criteria.
