I am pleased to announce that the next round of the Aurizon Community Giving Fund is now open for applications and closes 28 April 2017 at 5pm.
The fund offers cash grants up to $20,000 in the areas of Health and Wellbeing, Community Safety, Environment and Education.
Health & Wellbeing
Provide grants to initiatives that improve a community’s health and wellbeing, such as cardiovascular health related projects e.g. getting active/physical activity or healthy lifestyle programs, and mental health support.
Support initiatives that increase safety and security in our local communities, such as projects related to emergency response, crime prevention, natural disaster prevention and minimisation measures, accident prevention and road safety.
Support initiatives that promote environmental enhancement in our local communities, and in particular, initiatives that are focused on improving biodiversity of natural habitats, community conservation and environmental education (for example, land rehabilitation and revegetation programs, clean-up and education days and local conservation projects).
Provide support in areas such as literacy and numeracy, life education, apprenticeships and traineeships, and in particular, increasing and retaining skills in regional areas.
