AusNet Services provides $20,000 in development grants

AusNet Services has provided $20,000 towards a community development program that will award grants up to $3000 to local not-for-profit organisations for eligible projects.

In partnership with the Baw Baw Shire Council, the ‘Energising Your Community’ program, AusNet Services will aim to see community-minded groups take sustainable projects from the inception phase to completion.

“Building stronger relationships in the communities we service is important to our company. Our community development programs have been highly successful in helping not-for-profit organisations tackle the challenges facing their communities,” AusNet Services regional business manager Tim Lloyd said.

“We know there are many passionate people in our community working hard behind the scenes in many different areas including sporting and recreation clubs, service organisations and support groups to name a few,” Baw Baw Shire Mayor Debbie Brown said.

“This sort of funding creates real opportunities to improve social wellbeing, deliver community events or perhaps even pay for much needed infrastructure, equipment or renovations.
