Applications are now open for community halls across regional and rural NSW to apply for funding to help ease their maintenance costs under Essential Energy’s 2017-18 Community Support Program.

Regional manager North Coast, Brendon Neyland said the program had helped provide financial assistance to about 250 not-for-profit, non-commercial halls in local towns.

“Our Community Support Program aims to give something back to the local halls that make up the social fabric of regional, rural and remote NSW and provide a valuable venue for the provision of localised services for their neighbourhoods,” Brendon said.

Applications for Essential Energy’s 2017-18 Community Support Program open Tuesday August 1 and close at 5pm on Friday, September 15, 2017.

Successful applicants will be notified in October 2017.
