Collie Small Grants Program open for applications

The annual Synergy Collie Small Grants Program is open for applications.

Grants up to $5000 are available to community organisations, charities and not for profits making a difference in the Collie community.

Executive General Manager Thermal Generation, Angie Young, said investing in grassroot programs is an important part of Synergy’s commitment to the Collie community.

“This is the sixth year the Collie Small Grants Program has been making a positive impact in the region,” Ms Young said.

“During that time about $170,000 has been distributed to the community.

“Being able to support grassroots organisations in the Collie community is really important to Synergy, it’s always an honor to hand the cheques over to the recipients knowing the changes that can be made as a result.”

The Collie Small Grants Program supports community groups that deliver social, health, economic and/or environmental benefits.
