Funding support available
COMMUNITY groups with initiatives that make a positive difference to the local community are being encouraged to apply for funding support in the next round of Yancoal Australia’s Community Support Program.
The Yancoal Community Support Program provides funding to community groups working in the areas of health, social and community, environment, education and training.
Cameby Downs Coal operations manager Braedon Gaske encouraged locals to raise their hand for assistance by applying for funding.
“Via our Community Support Program, Cameby Downs Coal has the opportunity to assist those locally-focused programs and initiatives capable of making a real contribution to the continued growth and sustainability of the region,” Mr Gaske said.
“In the past, Yancoal funding has enabled the development and implementation of environmental projects, education, training and employment assistance initiatives, sponsorship of key community events, the purchase of much needed equipment and helped support disadvantaged groups within the community.
The program is open for applications until January 31.
