In line with our goal to enable regional prosperity, we have given our community support program a makeover so we can fund even more local projects that enhance the quality of life in our communities.

We are now offering grants to community groups, as well as a refreshed schools grant category and business grants.

If you are within our service region and have a project or initiative that aims to make our region a better place to live, helps people be more active, promotes social inclusion or water savings, we encourage you to apply.

Other community support

Strategic sponsorships

We work proactively with communities to identify sponsorship opportunities that align with our strategic objectives.

While we generally contact leading regional organisations directly to explore partnerships, we also invite you to reach out to us to discuss proposals that may align with our strategic goals.

Please contact the grants and sponsorship team on 1300 656 007 or email
