Applications open for third year of community grants

A financial boost is on its way for clubs, community organisations and not-for-profits who apply for the Maranoa Regional Council and Senex Energy Small Community Grants program.

Senex Energy is partnering with the council for a third year to provide $15,000 each in grants to help upgrade facilities and complete projects that have been on local groups’ to-do lists.

Applications for the Community Grants program, which also includes grants for larger projects, are now open and close on Friday, 26 March 2021.

Last year Yuleba Bowls Club used grant money to buy a defibrillator for its club house.

Injune Rodeo Association received $2,400 to help with its canteen upgrade and Roma Rugby Union Football Club refurbished the surface of Gallas Fox Oval.

Community Relations Manager Trevor Robertson said Senex was proud to be an active member of the Maranoa community, supporting jobs, local businesses and working with local organisations.

“This funding is important to the local people who work so hard to support community organisations and to those who benefit from what these groups do,” Mr Robertson said.

“The team at Senex is really proud to be partnering with Maranoa Regional Council again this year to help provide a boost.”

Maranoa Regional Council Mayor Tyson Golder said the Small Community Grants program was vital for providing upgrades, infrastructure and equipment.

“I encourage all community groups throughout the region to apply for a grant and thank Senex Energy for its ongoing support,” he said.
