UP to $10,000 in funding will be provided to a local emergency service organisation and a sports association in community grants from Hydro Tasmania. The Hydro offers grants of up to $5000 to help fund projects by Tasmanian not-for-profit organisations making a difference for people and communities.
Eleven grants have been announced in the fourth round of funding, with the beneficiaries including the Derwent Valley unit of the State Emergency Service, and the Southern Tasmanian Axemen’s Association.
The grant to the Derwent Valley SES will help this voluntary group to update its equipment and facilities, enabling it to retain more more members and to respond more effectively when they are needed the most.
The grant to the Southern Tasmanian Axemen’s Association will allow it to deliver a full-program wood chopping carnival at the Derwent Valley Autumn Festival in 2021, including at least one state championship title.
To help Tasmanian communities to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, Hydro Tasmania has now announced a special round of funding. These grants are intended to support specific initiatives that will help communities overcome difficulties associated with Covid-19. Community organisations are invited to apply for grants up to $10,000. Applications close at 5pm on Friday, June 5.
