Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund Open

MoneyPacific Hydro have opened the annual Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund which is open to community groups and not-for-profit organisations around the area.

Applications are open till the end of the month with funding of up to $10,000 available from a pool of over $50,000.

For more than a decade, Pacific Hydro have thrown money behind over 100 projects in Clements Gap, Crystal Brook, Redhill, Port Broughton and Mundoora, forking out more than $440,000.

Engagement and External Affairs Manager Krista Kim said the company love seeing the innovation that community groups put forward.

"Last year, successful applicants included: Mundoora Community Sports Club, who sought funding to upgrade their kitchen, The Willochra Home, to build a café and outdoor area for residents and Crystal Brook Junior Basketball club, who received funding for new basketball towers and hoops - our donation was also matched by a federal grant to complete two more courts so we are looking forward to continuing to support more initiatives this year," she said.

Applications are open for five funding areas - education and training, health and welfare, sport and recreation, the arts and culture, and the environment.
