Water and waste management company SUEZ has announced the successful applicants for the 2017 SUEZ Community Grants program, which provides funding of up to $15,000 for individual community and environmental projects.

This year’s program saw 19 lucky community groups, schools and organisations from across Australia receive more than $175,000 to help improve their local communities and the environment. This brings the total amount of funding distributed by the program to more than $575,000 over four years.

“From sustainable gardens and sun shades in children’s playgrounds to water-saving initiatives, this year’s applications have once again demonstrated how important grassroots organisations and projects are to our local communities,” said Mark Venhoek, SUEZ Australia and New Zealand CEO.

“We have really seen this year’s applicants show a real commitment to making the environment and their community a better place through a number of really creative and eco-friendly initiatives.”

Venhoek said SUEZ is proud to be supporting a range of organisations, from Brisbane through to Byford in Western Australia. In the coming months, the company will be visiting every single one of these groups to help raise awareness of the work they are doing and present them with their grant.
