APLNG Liveability Grants 4 Open

Grants Open

Maranoa Regional Council, in partnership with Australia Pacific LNG (APLNG) operated by Origin Energy, is pleased to announce that Round 4 of the Liveability Grants are now open.

Council and Origin Energy are committed to making the Maranoa an even better place to live, work and play and these grants aim to support projects, activities and events that enrich the lives of residents within the region.

The grants, of up to $25,000, are available to not-for-profit organisations and groups within the Maranoa region. Funding requests of under $10,000 require no co-contribution while amounts between $10,001 - $25,000 require a 20% cash or in-kind co-contribution.

Mayor Wendy Taylor said the APLNG Liveability Grants give community groups a helping hand.

“Community groups make such a huge contribution to the fabric of our community and these grants are just a small way that we can assist them to continue to do their valuable work,” Cr Taylor said.

Aleta Nicoll, General Manager Asset West at Origin, expressed pride in supporting local groups and residents through the initiative, highlighting Origin's ongoing commitment to enhancing the region as an excellent place to live and work.

“When we support local projects and invest in what matters most to our local communities, it can make a real difference in fostering community growth and prosperity,” Ms Nicoll said.

“Origin is committed to supporting and enriching communities across south-west Queensland where we operate through initiatives like this grant program."

The Round 4 application period will close on Friday, 31 May 2024. It will take up to six weeks for community organisations to be notified of the result of their application.
