At EnergyAustralia we are proud to be part of the Latrobe Valley and are committed to making a positive difference to our local community. One of the ways that we do this is through community funding of local initiatives that will deliver sustainable benefits for the Latrobe Valley.

EnergyAustralia has two priority areas for funding. These are:

  • Education: Funding aimed at promoting education and knowledge acquisition. This may also 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 inclusion for all. It may include such things as men’s sheds, upgrading communal facilities, improving local amenities and supporting vulnerable community members.
