FMG has funds for com­mu­nity groups

Pilbara News - - News - Court­ney Fowler

■ Com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions in­volved in pro­grams, ac­tiv­i­ties and events in the Pil­bara are en­cour­aged to ap­ply for fund­ing up to $3000 through the Fortes­cue Com­mu­nity Sup­port pro­gram.

The pro­gram, now in its sev­enth year, has helped not-for­profit or­gan­i­sa­tions and com­mu­nity groups fund ben­e­fi­cial pro­grams, ac­tiv­i­ties and events.

It fo­cuses on ini­tia­tives that em­brace and sup­port ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing, Abo­rig­i­nal en­gage­ment, health and well­ness, com­mu­nity safety, com­mu­nity in­volve­ment, eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal re­spon­si­bil­ity. Fortes­cue Group Gov­ern­ment and Com­mu­nity man­ager Alexa Mor­combe said the pro­gram sup­ported more than 30 Pil­barabased com­mu­nity ini­tia­tives in its last round of fund­ing.

“We’re very ex­cited to work with another group of grass­roots or­gan­i­sa­tions fo­cused on mak­ing a pos­i­tive im­pact in the com­mu­nity,” she said.

The pro­gram is open to groups within the coun­cil bound­aries of the Town of Port Hed­land and Shire of East Pil­bara and the towns of Tom Price and Roe­bourne.

Ap­pli­ca­tions for the Fortes­cue Com­mu­nity Sup­port are open from Oc­to­ber 1 un­til Oc­to­ber 31.
