Guidance Notes and Application Form

 

 

Dear Applicant,

 

Please find attached the form to be used in making your application to the Kingussie Community Hydro Fund (KCHF). The form should be submitted by email, and supporting information including cost quotations should be in email attachment form.

 

To comply with the terms of its Constitution and legal obligations, KCHF stipulates terms & conditions for applications. Please take the time to study them and complete the checklist on the application form.

 

General conditions.

Two levels of application will be available:

 

For amounts up to £2500, Category A:

Only applications from organisations and individuals lying within the current community council boundary of Kingussie will be considered, i.e within post code PH21.

Grant assisted projects must have a clearly identifiable benefit for the Kingussie community.

Grants for capital projects and services will not be paid in full until the project has been completed or the service provided. Update reports and/or proof of completion will be requested.

Applications must be submitted and approved before commencement of a project. No retrospective applications will be considered.

Where contracted work or purchase of materials are involved, three quotations for each of these should be obtained and submitted, unless exceptional circumstances exist where these cannot be provided.

Applications that contain match funding will be welcomed.

If considered necessary, the Fund reserves the right to request additional information or plans. This may include requesting the applicant to meet with the Fund to answer questions on the application.

Applications will normally be considered at six-monthly Fund meetings and applicants, then notified as soon as possible whether these have been accepted or declined. The application deadlines can be found on the Kingussie Community Development Company website.

Applications should be accompanied by emailed copies of the organisation’s most recent independently examined accounts, its constitution and three cost quotations. However, if it is not possible to provide any of these three requirements, then a letter explaining the reason must accompany the application.

 

For amounts up to £500, Category B:
