BARRE – The Heritage Wind Community Grant Program is now accepting applications for its spring 2023 grant cycle.

Counting the last grant cycle’s recipients, the grant program has awarded nearly $80,000 to community causes and non-profit organizations working to build healthy communities, increase environmental sustainability, foster economic development, and promote education, since its inception in 2020.

The previous fall grant cycle included the following community organizations: Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Association, Town of Barre, Orleans Koinonia Kitchen and Cobblestone Society and Museum.

Local organizations working in the Town of Barre, and the broader Orleans County community are encouraged to apply. Grants are typically awarded in $250 to $4,000 increments, with priority given to proposals that demonstrate meaningful impacts to the greatest number of area residents. We will be accepting applications until April 7.

  • Economic Development – Programs that support the economic wellbeing of the community.
  • Environmental Sustainability – Programs that support environmental revitalization, sustainability, or empower residents to be stewards of the environment.
