COFFS COAST residents have a great chance to make their neighbourhoods even safer.
NRMA Insurance has launched the 2011 Community Grants Program which gives funding to local groups tackling issues such as crime prevention, road safety, emergency readiness and response, and the environment.
“Over the years we’ve supported a number of fantastic community organisations that have helped to make a difference to local issues,” said Coffs Harbour NRMA spokeswoman Lyndelle Sullivan.
“A previous successful recipient in the area is Coffs Harbour PCYC’s Youth on the Go Program. NRMA Insurance is proud to support organisations that work to make places like Coffs Harbour a safer and more resilient community.”
Since 2003 the Community Grants Program has given more than $4 million to more than 1000 community projects across Australia.
Last year in NSW and the ACT alone, 75 groups received grants totalling more than $300,000.
Community groups interested in applying for a community grant are encouraged to visit www.nrma.com.au/grants. Applications close 5pm, March 31.
