Applications for this year’s EnergyAustralia Tallawarra Community Grants program are now open. If you are in the Illawarra region and have an initiative for your community, we’d love to hear from you!
This is the third year that we’re making $20,000 available to recognise and award local groups.
We award our grants based on a project’s potential to benefit the Illawarra region in two key areas: education and social inclusion.
- Education: This funding is aimed at promoting education outcomes for people of all ages in the community. This can include programs with a social or environmental focus and organisations which support career or skill development.
- Social inclusion: This funding is aimed at facilitating social inclusion. These initiatives support community cohesion and can include such things as men’s sheds, upgrading communal facilities, improving local amenities, and supporting vulnerable community members.
Past recipients of the grant include Life Education Illawarra, Illawarra Cycle Club, Dapto Rural Fire Brigade, Illawarra Drug Awareness Group, Gerringong Men’s Shed, SCARF, and Dapto Scout Group.
Application is easy and involves filling out a simple form. For more information on the grant or to download an application form visit our Tallawarra Community Grants page.
Applications close at 5pm on Monday 14th May, 2018.
