Grants for local projects driving sustainability

SUEZ is inviting community groups across Australia to apply for individual grants of up to $15,000 to help them build more sustainable communities.

Applications are now open for the 2019 SUEZ Community Grants Program, which is in its sixth year delivering funding to organisations and projects across Australia that enhance and strengthen sustainable communities.

Since 2014, SUEZ has provided more than $740,000 to communities, from Cranbourne in Victoria to Northfield in South Australia and right across to Western Australia’s Canning Vale. SUEZ wants to work with the groups behind projects committed to finding innovative solutions to some of our country’s toughest challenges.

CEO of SUEZ Australia & New Zealand Mark Venhoek said the purpose of the Community Grants Program is to identify local initiatives that will actively contribute to the sustainable well-being of Australian communities.

“We believe that strong and sustainable communities are the foundation of a better future for everyone, and we’re proud to invest in empowering communities to lead the change.”

“This year we’ve aligned our SUEZ Community Grants Program with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We’re asking all participants to focus their contribution around this important blueprint of a more sustainable future for all,” Mark said.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) came into effect in January 2016 and provide a framework for a more sustainable future towards 2030.

Individual grants of between $1,000 and $15,000 will be made available to successful applicants.

Applications are now open until 20 September at 5pm AEST, with grant recipients notified of the outcome by mid October 2019.
