The Dalby Kart Club, Chinchilla State School and the Biloela PCYC, are just some of the 12 community groups that received $51,103 in funding from Round 2 of CS Energy’s community sponsorships recently.

The successful applicants came from the Western Downs, Banana Shire and Brisbane areas.

CS Energy Head of Corporate Affairs Nev Conway said CS Energy’s community sponsorships are awarded in two rounds per financial year.

“In Round 1 we awarded more than $110,000 to 15 community groups, bringing the total for this financial year to well over $160,000 in support for our local communities,” Mr Conway said.

“This round we had more than 35 school, community and not-for-profit organisations apply for more than $570,000 of funding. There were a lot of worthy applications, and we work with our local power station managers to select the projects we think are going to have real, long-lasting positive impact on the local community.”
