The $100,000 Uralla Grants program was set up to share the benefits of the New England Solar Farm with the Uralla Shire, Dangarsleigh and Kellys Plains communities.
The program is part of the Community Benefit Sharing Initiative and is funded by UPC\AC Renewables Australia. Members of a local Community Reference Group helped design the grants program and oversee the selection of successful applications.
Grants of up to $5,000 are available for local community projects or initiatives, allocated via two funding rounds.
The first round of grant funding was awarded to 14 local projects which provided support for health and sporting services, local indigenous and non-indigenous historical awareness, environmental education, and community events.

The successful projects were selected by the Community Reference Group to share $50,000 in funding.
The projects and events will be delivered over the next 12 months.
