Community groups are being urged to apply for funding from proceeds of the Hyndburn Wind Farm.
The Prospects Foundation has announced the deadline for the next pot of available monies from the Windfall Fund and called on voluntary, community and faith groups in the borough to lodge their bids.
The fund is a £2 million pot being provided as part of the planning agreement with developer EnergieKontor for the 12-turbine wind farm on Oswaldtwistle Moor.
Ideas for potential projects include woodland planting, stream clearance, community allotments, renewable energy generation and making community buildings energy efficient.
Alison Silver, Windfall Fund coordinator, said the most popular theme supported in rounds one to three was local food and the largest individual grant went towards a waste and recycling project.
She added: “It is important for groups wishing to start projects to apply for this round of funding as the panel will meet at the end of January.
“It usually takes up to a month to process successful applications and for groups to receive the funding. Their projects can then start at the end of
February or in spring time.
“Some areas of Hyndburn have not yet received any funding and so far we have not received an application from a faith group, a youth organisation or a uniformed group such as scouts or girl guides.”
The Windfall Fund is open to not-for profit organisations over the next 25 years with more than £100,000 up for grabs each year.
The deadline for round four applications is Friday, December 20.
Forms can be completed either at the Prospects Environment Centre on Broadway in Accrington or by visiting www.prospectsfoundation.org.uk.
