Do you have a project, activity or event that benefits the local communities of the Snowy Mountains and surrounds? You may be eligible for a Snowy Hydro community grant of up to $10,000. 

Snowy Hydro is a long-time major supporter of local people and community initiatives, with the 2022 community grants program now open for round 2 applications.

Snowy Hydro Acting CEO Roger Whitby said the company was pleased to provide grant funding opportunities to local not-for-profit organisations.

“We are proud to be a part of our local communities and want to support the great ideas and energy of people contributing positively to them.

“Our grants are available for projects and events that align with Snowy Hydro’s four social commitment pillars of education and development, health and wellbeing, regional capacity building and environment.”

In the first round of Snowy Hydro’s Community Grants Program earlier this year, there were more than 30 grant applications, with 13 receiving funding. Projects and initiatives that were supported included a Cooma Landcare rehabilitation project, establishment of an indigenous interpretive walking trail in Tumbarumba, and the Hume & Hovell ultra marathon event through Corryong and Khancoban.

Mr Whitby encouraged community members to find out more about the community grants program. “If you have an event or initiative that may be eligible for support, I encourage you to apply,” he said.

All applications must be received via the online form on our website. Please also carefully review associated information about grants eligibility, assessment criteria and Snowy Hydro’s  grant guidelines before applying, to avoid disappointment.

Importantly, the location of the event/initiative must be within the Snowy Monaro Regional and Snowy Valleys council areas, or in Corryong, Victoria.

Applications for round 2 of the Snowy Hydro Community Grants Program must be received by Saturday 15 October. Following the evaluation period, applicants will be advised of the outcome by 30 November 2022.
