Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund


Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund

Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund is open to community groups and not-for-profit organisations around the area for funding of up to $10,000 available from a pool of over $55,000.

Since the commissioning of Clements Gap Wind Farm in 2008, the Fund has provided more than $440,000 to over 126 local sustainable projects.

The Fund is a part of Pacific Hydro’s Community Investment Program, which has provided more than $3 Million to over 700 projects across Australia since 2005.

“Last year, successful applicants included: Mundoora Community Sports Club, who sought funding to upgrade their kitchen, The Willochra Home, to build a café and outdoor area for residents and Crystal Brook Junior Basketball club, who received funding for new basketball towers and hoops – our donation was also matched by a federal grant to complete two more courts so we are looking forward to continuing to support more initiatives this year,” she said.

The Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund aims to support projects, initiatives, and organisations that provide lasting benefit to local communities and address community need in at least one of these five key areas:

  • education and training
  • health and welfare
  • sport and recreation
  • arts and culture, and
  • the environment.
