2021 / 2022 GRANTS

CASA: $11,370

Funding for the Homeless Expo.  This expo sees the homeless engage with service providers in one place, providing immediate assistance for linking with short-term accommodation, clothing, food, and transportable bedding to those in need.

Crossroad Arts: $11,000

Funding the “Access to All” project that will support access to Auslan interpreters for projects and productions.  Also audio description and captioning for promotional and project videos and consultants to assist for a major production for the deafblind, vision impaired, and blind or deaf.

Central Queensland University: $5,000

This will provide 5 x $1,000 emergency grants to support current students that may have a trauma event and need financial assistance for a short period.  This hopefully assists them to continue with their studies at a challenging time of their lives.

Phoenix Place: $20,000

This will support the “Community First Aid Initiative” that aims to equip 120 individuals who are members of community groups, small not-for-profit organisations, and volunteer groups with Mental Health First Aid Accreditation.

Lowanna House: $23,630

This funded the installation of solar panels and battery storage for the Single Women’s Shelter, a 5-bedroom dwelling.  This will enable Lowanna to install air conditioning that will be funded by Lowanna, in the women’s living areas and bedrooms and the solar panels and batteries will reduce significant expenses incurred to run these air conditioners.
