Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group is taking its commitment to the community one step further by this week launching a new community investment initiative aimed at fostering long-term partnerships with locally based organisations who provide vital health, educational, environmental or community related services to the people of the Hunter. The Community Partnership Program is now seeking applications from suitable organisations who are looking for financial support of up to $90,000 to implement or facilitate a grassroots program of significant community benefit over the next three years.

The Community Partnership Program will sit alongside the existing Community Support Program, which was implemented in 2010 and provides a one-off support payment to organisations for the purpose of purchasing equipment, assisting with events or short-term project or programs.

Through the Community Support Program, NCIG has contributed over $1.5million to local charities, sporting groups and not-for-profit organisations across the Hunter. While the Community Partnership Program will increase the level of funding available to the community, it will also improve the sustainability of local organisations who already make a remarkable difference through their projects and programs.

Just like the Community Support Program, the new Community Partnership Program will accept applications in March and September each year, but will have a particular emphasis on one of four investment focus areas (health, education, environment or people) in each round. The focus of the September 2018 CPP round is on Education.

Please go to our Community Investment page, if you are interested in applying for one or both of these programs, or call us to discuss.
