The Cattle Hill wind farm Community Fund (CHWFCF) gives financial support to community groups, organisations and projects that provide a benefit to a broad proportion of the local community. CHWFCF will provide $2,500 per installed wind turbine annually, totaling $120,000 per annum. The key aim is to enable local not-for-profit groups, organisations and projects to make a positive and enduring contribution to the local community.
