A powerful chance for not-for-profit QLD services to secure Ergon-Energex grant
Queensland community groups working on disaster, social, economic, and mental health resilience projects, including those in the early childhood education and care (ECEC) sector, are being encouraged to apply for a part of the $100,000 Ergon-Energex Community Fund.
The $100,000 pool from Queensland’s publicly-owned electricity distributors offers not-for-profit groups the opportunity to apply for up to $10,000 each.
“Ergon and Energex are particularly seeking applicants who are working to make a difference in terms of disaster and emergency resilience but any not-for-profit group doing great work in Queensland is encouraged to apply,” said Queensland Energy Minister Mick de Brenni.
In previous years, the Ergon-Energex Community Fund has assisted organisations such as Help Enterprises who train people with disabilities to provide meals to the needy, along with Little Souls Taking Big Steps to upgrade the organisation’s facilities to create a sensory-safe facility for children on the Autism spectrum.
Applications for the 2021 Ergon-Energex Community Fund open on Monday, 25 October and close on Friday, 19 November.
