If you live within the Tain Community Council area (see map) you can apply for financial support for community project from either the Tain Common Good Fund or the Beinn Tharsuinn Windfarm Community Fund.
Both funds have criteria which your application must meet if it is to receive support.
Applications to both funds are administered by Highland Council and details of the criteria and application forms can be found on the Common Good Fund and Beinn Tharsuinn Windfarm Community Fund pages on the Highland Council website. Downloadable application forms and advice can be found in the links on the right-hand side of these pages.

Bheinn Tharsuinn Community Wind Farm Fund
At the 28th March 2016 meeting, the Community Council considered three application for funding from the Bheinn Tharsuinn Community Wind Farm Fund. In light of the very limited funds available to us from that funding stream it was resolved, henceforth, any grant aid would be considered only for projects demonstrating wider community benefit and can not, for now, be allocated to the likes of relatively limited interest groups for individual projects. We sincerely wish this were not the case and sympathise with groups striving to generate much needed funds.
We remain committed to supporting local groups in other ways and will always appreciate the valuable work done within the community. However, the financial assistance is simply not there from traditional sources such as the Tain Common Good Fund for the forseeable future. We wish this were not the case but it is a matter quite beyond our control.
