The Minnygap Community Fund supports community projects benefitting those living within the Johnstone, Templand and Kirkpatrick Juxta community council areas. This includes the villages of Johnstonebridge, Templand and Beattock.
The fund is provided by Minnygap Energy Ltd, owner of the Minnygap Wind Farm, and the Johnstonebridge Community Centre & Development Trust (JCCDT). The fund opened in 2018.
An annual amount of £50,000, rising in line with inflation, will be paid into the fund for the operating life of the wind farm. Small grants between £1 – £500. Standard grants between £501 – £10,000
