Windfarm cash to fill community 'sails'

10 Apr 2013

With less than a week until the $50,000 Clements Gap Sustainable Communities Fund closes, Pacific Hydro is urging groups not to leave their applications to the last minute.

"Applications must be received by Tuesday", said the wind farm company's general manager Lane Crockett. Groups and organisations operating in Clement's Gap, Mundoora, Port Broughton, Wandearah, Redhill and Crystal Brook are eligible for funding.

"If your group or organisation is working on socially and environmentally sustainable projects that need funding, we encourage you to apply", Mr Crockett said.

The Fund Allocation Panel is comprised of four community members, four Pacific Hydro staff and a representative from both Barunga West and Port Pirie councils.

Applications are accepted in five areas: sport and recreation, health and safety, art and culture, education and the environment. Visit www.pacifichydro.com.au or phone Chloe on (03) 8621 6428.
