The latest round of partnerships builds on more than $400,000 which was awarded to 55 regional WA community organisations, through Round 6 of the program, earlier this year.
Horizon Power’s Community Partnerships Program provides $1.1 million each year to a range of organisations and initiatives that are having a positive, long-lasting impact on our remote and regional communities.

Since 2020, Horizon Power has proudly awarded more than $3 million to more than 250 regional initiatives, including youth projects, cultural events, community sport and recreation, environmental conservation, Aboriginal language programs and art workshops.

Horizon Power will provide information sessions in the regions and online, in early August, to provide not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities with the opportunity to learn more about the program and investment partnership packages available.

Horizon Power CEO Stephanie Unwin said the latest round of partnerships would support not-for-profit organisations in our regions who were feeling the strain of the rising cost of living and those who remain impacted by the devasting floods.

“We are committed to building vibrant communities in WA and this goes beyond providing power and building infrastructure,” she explained.

“Local organisations and events play such important roles in our regions, and we are proud to be supporting so many amazing grassroots initiatives which are making a real difference to the lives of so many people.”
