Environment Levy supports 24 community groups
Council endorsed a new Environment Levy Partnerships Program at its Ordinary Meeting today that will deliver more than half a million dollars to 24 environmentally focussed community groups.
Environment Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the program provides up to three years funding to community groups whose operations or services contribute to the Sunshine Coast environment.
“We are lucky on the Sunshine Coast to have so many community groups who work tirelessly for the environment,” Cr McKay said.
“The program provides the support these groups need to continue delivering.
“The Environment Levy is an important program assisting to protect and enhance the Sunshine Coast environment. Our community groups are important partners for council and the Partnerships Funding Program is a sensible way to support them in achieving this.
