SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT COMMUNITY GRANTS AWARD 38 GROUPS WITH MORE THAN $155,000 IN FUNDING

23/07/2015

Thirty-eight community groups across Australia have been awarded more than $155,000 in SUEZ environnement community grant funding to help realise their project dreams.

SUEZ environnement CEO Eric Gernath said the grants program supports social and environmental projects which help create a more sustainable future in communities across Australia.

“We look for groups of people who are actively making a positive change to their local community and their environment. Through our 2015 community grants program, we will be helping 38 deserving groups and projects to do just that,” said Eric.

“The projects that we are directly funding range from primary school community gardens and Men’s Sheds equipment, to wheelchair ramp access in a camping centre and therapeutic horse-riding programs for disabled children.

“One of the most touching is  a very small organisation that supports families with critically ill children get through those little road bumps like paying for hospital parking or helping out with household chores. There are so many great stories in our community and we are grateful to be able to support all these groups in a small way,” he said.

The SUEZ environnement community grants program (previously SITA Australia) was launched In October 2013. The program provides grants for projects up to $5,000 to encourage community involvement in creating a sustainable future for Australian communities.

In its two years of operation, the grants program has provided more than $250,000 to inspiring local organisations and projects. This year the grants program attracted 445 applications nationally.
