Christmas comes early for Love Water Grants recipients

Twenty community groups, businesses and organisations have received an early Christmas gift, with a share in more than $120,000 as part of Hunter Water’s largest ever Love Water Grants program.

The one-off grants are valued up to $10,000 and will help fund a range of water conservation and efficiency projects, as well as education, environmental and sustainability initiatives.

Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said Hunter Water’s Love Water Grants program was a great initiative in supporting the region during a challenging 2020.

“I’m proud to support Hunter Water’s Love Water Grants program, which will help fund 20 worthy initiatives across the Lower Hunter.

“It’s been a tough and challenging year for many with COVID-19. We’re pleased to be able to work together and assist these local groups and organisations in continuing their valued community work, while also helping them to make smart water choices,” said Mrs Pavey.

Hunter Water Managing Director Darren Cleary said it’s clear from the number and quality of applications that the community is embracing the Love Water message.

“Water conservation and efficiency is front of mind for many in our community, and we’re proud to partner with these grant recipients to deliver a variety of great projects. These include things like upgrading irrigation and water system infrastructure, installing rainwater tanks and establishing community gardens to name a few.

“We received a record number of quality applications this year. While we unfortunately haven’t been able to fund all of the projects in round one of the program, we’re exploring what other opportunities Hunter Water may have to assist.

“We’ll also have round two of our Love Water Grants program opening early next year so we look forward to supporting even more worthy initiatives that will help our community make smart water choices and bring us together,” said Mr Cleary.

Round two of the Love Water Grants program opens in February 2021. For more information, visit www.hunterwater.com.au/grants
