Lithgow Council is encouraging local community groups, schools and charities to participate in Endeavour Energy’s Powering Communities grants program.
This new community grants program will support community groups to deliver positive and sustainable outcomes for the community – and to help these communities thrive.
The grants program offers one-off grants of $2,000 to $10,000 to support community groups such as not-for-profit organisations, registered charities, schools and community groups. The grants are open across four categories:
- Education: Creating learning and development opportunities
- Health & wellbeing: Programs that support the health and wellbeing of our community
- Environment: Programs that help the community to participate in renewable energy and reduce their carbon footprint, programs that restore areas after a flood, fire or storm or help communities plan for a weather event
- Social inclusion: Programs that support inclusiveness, equity and diversity or increase energy literacy amongst the community.
Applications are open until Sunday 21 May 2023. For more information on the program and to apply visit www.endeavourenergy.com.au/grants.
