Community Support Program

Our community support program will be open from the 1st of March 2024. Through this program we proudly support local grassroots community, not–for-profit and charitable organisations. 

We have a strong sense of social responsibility when it comes to supporting our region. We fulfil this responsibility by contributing to, and promoting, the cultural and social development of the ACT. As a result, we partner with a wide range of local community, cultural, educational, sporting and fundraising initiatives. These partnerships also serve as a key tool in our ongoing commitment to developing water and wastewater literacy throughout the region.

Our CSP is designed to maximise returns to the community and benefits to the organisation. It accomplishes this by providing financial and in-kind assistance to organisations that bring valuable community support services/programs or various community activities which provide and encourage community access and participation. 

In 2024-25 we will proudly continue supporting the Canberra region. Our CSP elements are ‘we are nurturing, we value you and we care’. We want to work with the community to build upon these elements and support locally across sectors. 

This program runs annually following the financial year but multiyear sponsorship packages will be considered.

From 1 March 2024 through to 30 April 2024 the Community Support Program will be open to applicants. Applications will be assessed in May and sponsorships will commence in July 2024.

Please see our guidelines for further information and eligibility.

Sponsorship requests will not be considered for:

  • Applications/organisations which discriminate against any persons, organisations or groups.
  • Individuals, including those seeking support for activities such as academic studies, competition in a sporting event or travel.
  • Organisations or activities which are environmentally negligent or do not endorse sustainable practices.
  • Organisations or activities which may be deemed likely to promote controversial issues that could damage our reputation (e.g. gambling, tobacco, alcohol or other drug related sponsorships).
  • Direct benefit to a political party, political organisation, politicians or candidates for public office.
  • Applications/organisations who do not have a positive reputation in the community.
