Partnering with local groups for vibrant regional communities
November 15 2022
Horizon Power is partnering with more than 59 community organisations across regional and remote Western Australia to deliver on our shared vision for vibrant communities.
Funded by the State Government, Horizon Power’s Community Partnerships Program has awarded almost $600,000 to local groups in Broome and Halls Creek in the Kimberley, through to Munglinup and Esperance in the south, to Carnarvon and Pilbara towns in the west.
The successful applicants for the first round of funding for 2022/23 include the Shire of Halls Creek, for the installation of a hoist for inclusive access to the town’s aquatic centre, the Nyunngaku Women's Group for its Women's Wellbeing Workshop series and the Karratha District Junior Soccer Association. The Wyndham Youth Aboriginal Corporation, which will receive funds for equipment and facility upgrades, is also among the successful applicants. View the full list of successful 2022/23 partners.
The Program has been developed in line with Horizon Power’s guiding principles - listening to communities to create and deliver together, positively impacting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, people and business, protecting and improving our shared environment, and, above all, putting regional Western Australia first.
Community groups or organisations across Horizon Power’s vast 2.3 million square kilometre footprint which support people, build capacity and capability or simply deliver benefits that help make the regions more vibrant were eligible to apply for funding of between $1,000 and $50,000.
Acting Energy Minister Tony Buti announced the recipients of the $599,920 awarded in round one of the 2022/23 program funding, which is in addition to the $1 million awarded to 86 community organisations in 2021/22.
Since the Program was revitalised in 2020, more than $2 million has been awarded to 200 deserving organisations.
Horizon Power’s final Community Partnerships Program round for 2022/23 will open for applications in February 2023. Find out more about our Community Partnerships Program, and keep in the loop about future opportunities here.
