Community grant recipients standing in field

Not-for-profit community groups across the Riverina, Murray, and South West regions of New South Wales have been encouraged to apply for the latest round of Transgrid’s Community Partnership Program.

Groups and individuals making a difference in their communities will be eligible for individual grants of up to $5,000 to aid in funding local initiatives.

Transgrid Executive General Manager of Major Projects, Gordon Taylor, said the grants program, which has been running since 2012, is one of the ways Transgrid is supporting regional communities.

“We want to provide lasting benefits to our customers, communities and the environment by supporting community initiatives which provide much needed services in their local area,” Mr Taylor said.

“The grants program is an opportunity for community organisations to secure additional funding for a range of initiatives including in education, environmental sustainability and safety and wellbeing,” he said.

The previous round of the Community Partnerships program delivered support to 44 not-for-profit groups.

“These contributions had a direct impact on more than 18,500 individuals with a flow-on effect to over 200,000 community members – helping make a real difference at the grassroots level,” Mr Taylor said.

Applications for the Community Partnership Program will remain open until August 31, for more information and to apply, visit:
