Applications are now open for the latest round of the Busselton Water Community Partnership Program.
The Partnership Program seeks to support the local community, volunteer groups, schools and clubs, particularly projects related to water efficiency; environmental sustainability; education; innovation; a strong sense of community and leadership.
In 2021, six local groups received funding, including FAWNA who received a new caged trailer to assist transportation needs, and POOPS Busselton for a new gazebo to gain a larger presence.
The Busselton Community Garden accessed funding for a new water tank, and long-standing program recipient, Disabled Surfers Association South West for its Let’s Go Surfing days at Bunker Bay.
Busselton Water Managing Director Chris Elliott said the program has continued to be a success over the past five years and he’s looking forward to see this year’s applications.
“We’d love to see local groups apply this year from across the community that need the support, so if you have a project that needs a helping hand, please complete an application form and send it in.” said Mr Elliott.
Busselton Volleyball Association also received $1,400 towards new equipment that supports both the indoor and beach seasons.
