Applications for water grants closing soon
  • Wednesday 13 March 2013

Eligible not-for-profit community groups have less than two weeks remaining to apply to Sunshine Coast Council’s Water and Sewerage Funding Program for help with water and sewerage charges.

Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said she is encouraging all eligible not-for-profit groups apply for funding.

“We have so many wonderful community groups on the Sunshine Coast – many of which are struggling with their bills – and the Water and Sewerage Funding Program is an opportunity for council to give them a helping hand,” said Cr McKay.

“The program will help groups with their fixed water and sewerage access charges for the 2012/13 financial year and with $700,000 available, I strongly encourage all eligible groups to submit an application.

“It’s not too late to start an application – council’s wonderful grants staff are available to answer any questions and can help with the application process.

“The Water and Sewerage Funding Program will not cover usage charges, but for groups that have very little income, help with fixed access charges will go a long way.”

Applications for the Water and Sewerage Funding Program close at 5pm Friday 22 March 2013.
