Community groups and not-for-profit organisations throughout the South West are among those encouraged to apply in the next round of community grants from Kleenheat.

Successful applicants will be awarded $1000 across five categories including Connected Communities, Inspiring Bright Minds, Health and Wellbeing, A Healthy Planet and Cultural Diversity.

Last round’s funding recipient, Manjimup Rovers Soccer Club, used the grant to buy equipment for team building excercises.

Kleenheat general manager Tanya Rybarczyk said the grants directly supported West Australian regional communities.

“(The grants are for) volunteers and community members who run neighbourhood initiatives, help build connected communities, making them a healthier and happier place to live,” she said.

“By continuing our grants program, we’re supporting local go-getters to make a positive difference in the communities they support. We strongly encourage community groups throughout regional Western Australia to apply for a Kleenheat Community Grant.”

The conclusion of this year’s program will see a total of $100,000 donated to worthwhile community initiatives.

Koombana Bay Sailing Club was also a lucky recipient in the last round of funding while Little Taddies Child Care Centre and Manjimup Community Gardens have been awarded funding through the program in earlier rounds.
