$100,000 if you plan to help your people

PEOPLE interested in making a positive difference to their community are being encouraged to apply for funding from not-for-profit company Enterprise and Training Company Limited (ETC).

ETC chairman Rod McKelvey said ETC was making available $100,000 in community grants as part of the new ETC Community Support Fund launched yesterday.

"The fund is designed to help organisations improve the social and economic development of local communities," he said.

Organisations could apply for up to $15,000 each and applications would be assessed based on how well they met the following principles:

 provide the greatest benefit to the most number of people

 be self-sustainable after getting funding

 show potential to use ETC Community Support funding to leverage funding or contributions from other sources

 assist regional development, grow employment or involve education

 cater to youth or youth development

 seek to improve the quality of life in the local community or involve community development

 contribute to the economic and social development in the areas where ETC operates.

According to CEO Michael Close, ETC had been committed to strengthening local communities for the past 23 years.
