Community groups and not-for profit organisations can apply for up to $30,000 in funding for community projects in Summerland Point, Gwandalan, Chain Valley Bay and Mannering Park as part of a joint initiative between Central Coast Council and Delta Coal Pty Ltd.

Council's Community Partnerships Unit Manager, Glenn Cannard said the Chain Valley Colliery Community Funding Program aims to support organisations to deliver projects that improve community infrastructure and services in Chain Valley Bay and surrounding suburbs.

"Since 2013, the Chain Valley Colliery Community Funding Program has provided funding to a range of local groups and organisations to improve and enhance the local community," Mr Cannard said.

"Past projects to receive funding include classroom laptops for Mannering Park Public School, Northern Lakes Neighbourhood Centre Cinema Under the Stars, the Mannering Parks Tidy Towns Group 'Keep It Clean, Keep It Green' initiative and a 3 Phase Converter for Manno Men's Shed, to name just a few.

"Projects that deliver social, cultural, economic or environmental benefits to communities in the four suburb areas are encouraged to apply."

Grant applications open on Monday 17 August and close on Friday 25 September 2020.

Mayor Lisa Matthews said Council is pleased to be supporting local groups and initiatives in such a positive way.

"Council is thrilled for these investments in our community. This funding provides an important 'leg up' to groups and organisations looking to benefit residents of Summerland Point, Gwandalan, Chain Valley Bay and Mannering Park."

To provide community groups and organisations with an opportunity to learn more about the application process, Council is holding online grants information sessions on:

  • Tuesday 18 August, 2pm
  • Thursday 20 August, 6pm

Chain Valley Colliery/Delta Coal Community Fund guidelines and applications are available at Council's funding page. For more information, or phone 4350 5360.
