Community grant applications open 1 January 2020

Stanmore Coal is proud to be part of the community, and to make a significant contribution to the Isaac region’s economic and community life as an employer and coal exporter. We support our employees to live locally, and are committed to our environmental and social responsibilities as a mine owner.

As part of our regional involvement, the Stanmore Coal Isaac Plains Community Grant Program provides up to $5,000 funding for local projects, initiatives and events that make a real difference to community wellbeing, and make our community a great place to live.

Applications for the next round of Stanmore Coal Isaac Plains Community Grant Program will reopen on 1 January 2020.

We invite local organisations and community groups in the Moranbah, Nebo, Mackay and surrounding regions to submit funding applications for local projects and events by 31 January 2020. Applications must focus on initiatives that support young people in the region, highlight community health and wellbeing, provide opportunities for Indigenous engagement or support the environment.

Applications will be reviewed against the following criteria:
− The organisation has a clear purpose, understands its target group, and can demonstrate the capacity and
    capability to manage the activity/program/project
− The program for which funding is sought aligns with one or more of the focus areas listed above
− The issue/focus area for the event/program/project is important to the local community and there is an identified
    benefit to the community generally from the proposal
− The funding request clearly outlines how the donated funds will be spent — the grant amount should cover a significant
    part, if not all, of the activity/program/project.

Applications can be submitted using the online Application Form, which can be found at: Applicants are encouraged to review the grant guidelines before applying.

In addition to community grants, Stanmore Coal also has a marquee available for use at community events, as well as corporate merchandise available for donation to support appropriate fundraising activities.

We look forward to receiving applications.
