Yaloak South Community Fund

Got a project or idea that would benefit the local community?

The Yaloak South Community Fund has been established to share the benefits of Pacific Hydro’s Yaloak South Wind Farm with the community. $28,000 will be available each year over the 25-year life of the project.

Following a public call for participants over several months late last year and early this year, a Community Partnerships Group of local residents has been brought together. This group has been empowered to decide how these funds should be used. The Group has decided that funds should be allocated in the community.

Expressions of interest are now invited from community groups or individuals who have a project or an idea that would benefit the local community. Priority will be placed on projects that serve the areas of Beremboke, Mount Wallace, and Rowsley. Applications will be open until 7 August 2017.

How to express your interest

  1. Complete and submit the short expression of interest form. The form can be completed electronically using Adobe Reader (link opens the Adobe website). This tells the Community Partnerships Group what your idea is, approximately how much money is being requested, and how it will benefit the local community.
  2. Submit this with supporting documents to Pacific Hydro by 7 August 2017, via email to enquiries@pacifichydro.com.au or via mail to Level 13, 700 Collins Street, Docklands VIC 3008.
  3. Your expression of interest form will be assessed by the Community Partnerships Group. If your project is deemed suitable, you may be asked to provide more information or to present to the Group in the next stage of the process. Making it through to the second stage of the application process does not necessarily mean that your project will receive funding.
