Community grants open to FNQ

Local employment services My Pathway is offering grants of up to $5000 to individuals and community organisations in Far North Queensland.

The grant aims to develop skills to improve community participation, connect people to employment opportunities or grow social and financial wellbeing.

Applicants are asked to share their reason for applying for funds with the hashtag #whatsyourReason, along with a description of the positive impact their use of the grant will have on the local community.

The organisation also reports that preference will be given to applicants who use the grant to support employment outcomes, people with a disability, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders, disadvantaged communities, or those with literacy or numeracy barriers.

My Pathway CEO Paul Synnott says community investment to promote a strong economy is one of the hallmarks of the company.

“Our organisation invests in the communities where we work every day. Offering community grants provides an additional boost to help fund grassroots activities or equipment,” he said.

“We’re eager to support applicants to purchase products or services that will improve community participation, connect people to employment or grow social and financial wellbeing.

“We recognise there are many people and communities doing it tough due to personal circumstances, natural disaster or the impacts of COVID. This is just one initiative we hope will help recovery and growth.”

The #whatsyourReason community grants are open to individuals and not-for-profit organisations, with applications due by 21 May 2021.

Successful applicants will be notified in May by phone or email.

For assistance with your application email community@mypathway.com.au, or for more information go to What’s your Reason? – My Pathway – Invested in People.
