Supporting local sustainability initiatives8 February 2017
Three grants of up to $5000 are up for grabs for community groups that will support sustainability in our local neighbourhoods
The CityLink Tulla Widening project is encouraging local community groups and charities to improve sustainability and liveability in their neighbourhoods through its sustainability grants program.
Three grants of up to $5000 are on offer to support groups or organisations with an initiative that will improve the quality of life for locals and the environment along CityLink, between Power Street and Bulla Road.
"The CityLink Tulla Widening project is eager to support groups and organisations motivated to improve the overall health and wellbeing of their local community," said Transurban Project Director, Andrew Neville.
"These grants will provide recipients with funding to kick-start new projects or to put existing ideas into action.
"Sustainability is a diverse area, so we're looking forward to receiving proposals for broad range of ideas and initiatives.
"From planting, conservation and regeneration activities, to mobility, arts and education programs, we're keen to receive ideas that aim to improve the long-term liveability and sustainability of local communities that the CityLink Tulla Widening project has worked in."
The first round of grant applications opens 9am on Wednesday 1 February 2017. Applications will be lodged via Transurban's SmartyGrants webpage and will be accepted until 5pm on Friday 17 March 2017.
Community groups active in close proximity to CityLink – specifically in the City of Melbourne, Moonee Valley City Council and Moreland City Council areas – are strongly encouraged to get involved.
Organisations that are located further away from the CityLink work area can apply for Transurban's community grants program.
The CityLink Tulla Widening sustainability grants program is funded by Transurban, with support from CityLink Tulla Widening project partner VicRoads and construction contractor CPB Contractors.
