SA Water is offering local groups, events and clubs up to $10,000 to support not for profit projects and events focused on environmental sustainability and improving community health and wellbeing.
SA Water Strategy, Engagement and Innnovation Acting General Manager Sandra Ricci said the Community Partnerships Program had supported more than 50 groups and organisations in recent years.
“Our 2021 program partnered with an amazing variety of projects making a difference to their communities, ranging from the installation of a new water storage tank at the Lucindale air strip to assist with local firefighting efforts, to supporting a horticultural therapy program for people of all abilities at the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium,” Ms Ricci said.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has provided a few challenging years for many grassroots events and organisations that might be a perfect fit for our Community Partnerships Program, and we look forward to seeing how we can help.”
All events and projects supported through the program must involve water or water use, demonstrate a clear link to SA Water’s vision of delivering trusted water services for a sustainable and healthy South Australia, and be delivered within the 2022-23 financial year.
Applications for the Community Partnerships Program close on 19 April 2022, with funding for the successful recipients to be made available from July 2022.
