Community Grants Program

EnergyAustralia Yallourn provides community funding for local initiatives that aim to deliver sustainable benefits to the Latrobe Valley.

EnergyAustralia has two priority areas for funding. These are:

  • Education: Funding aimed at promoting education and knowledge acquisition. This can include programs with a social or environmental focus and organisations which support career or skill development.
  • Social inclusion: Funding aimed at facilitating social inclusion. This is aimed at initiatives that support community cohesion and can include such things as men’s sheds, upgrading communal facilities, improving local amenities and supporting vulnerable community members. 

Applications for grants up to $10,000 will open for the second and final round in 2017 on 1 September and close 5pm Friday 29 September 2017.

For small funding requests (up to $1,000), or more information, please email or call Meredith Bowden on 03 5128 2960.
