Community Halls around regional and rural NSW could be eligible to receive a little extra support with the launch of the Essential Energy Community Halls Program. The Community Halls Program, which has been running for around 10 years, recognises that Community Halls are often the heart of a local community and provide a place for people to come together.
“This is part of what we do to help the local communities, that we live and work in ourselves,” said Operations Manager for Coastal, Chris Maccoll.
“Previous recipients have told us that this money has helped them continue the important role the halls play in their local communities. With many in our community doing it tough this year with drought and then fires, these halls are as important as ever, and we really encourage all eligible Community Halls to apply.”
In addition, this year Essential Energy is asking for any Community Halls that may have been damaged by bushfires to apply for consideration for additional support.
Hall representatives can apply for the $200 payment online at Essential Energy’s website www.essentialenergy.com.au or by contacting us on 13 23 91.
Applications close 5pm, Friday March 20, 2020.
