COMMUNITY BENEFIT FUND
APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2019 COMMUNITY BENEFIT FUND WILL OPEN EARLY-MID 2019. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR FURTHER UPDATES.
Longreach Airport understands the integral role that the community plays in our ongoing success. We strive to be recognised as a key contributor to the community through ongoing employee services, community consultation, and philanthropic support.
The Longreach Airport Community Benefit Fund is aimed at supporting community groups through one-off requests to assist in the following areas:
Health and Wellbeing
Initiatives that improve the overall health and wellbeing of members in the local community, including sporting bodies and projects related to supporting mental or physical health.
Initiatives that increase the safety and security of the local community, such as projects related to emergency response, crime prevention, natural disaster prevention, accident prevention and road safety.
Initiatives aimed at increasing the education of the local community in areas such as literacy and numeracy, life education, apprenticeships, and traineeships (schools and tertiary education providers may apply).
Initiatives that promote environmental enhancement in the local community and initiatives that are focused on improving the biodiversity of natural habitats, community conservation and environmental education. For example, land rehabilitation and revegetation programs, clean-up and education days and local conservation projects.
Arts and Culture
Initiatives that encourage creativity amongst the local community in the musical, artistic or performing arts space.
Other Community Benefit Initiatives
Initiatives from community groups that encourage and positively contribute to the community, but may not necessarily fit into one of the above categories.
