We are proud to support the Hume Valley School Community Connections Program with the $20,000 CSL Behring Australia 2016 Community Grant.

The CSL Behring Community Grant Program supports community organisation to deliver great projects / initiatives for the local Hume community.

The 2017 CSL Behring Community Grant has now closed and applicants will be notified by the end of February 2018 of the outcome. 

The Community Grant, now in its fourth year, will provide up to $20,000 to support a local community initiative/project in or around Broadmeadows, including Campbellfield, Jacana, Gladstone Park, Westmeadows and Dallas.

With Hume City Council’s support in identifying local needs, the 2017 CSL Behring Community Grant seeks to provide financial assistance towards a community initiative/project that addresses at least one of the following community needs:

  • Education and training: This category seeks to fund programs that help to deliver improved education and training outcomes at all age ranges and levels. Programs may target initiatives that remove barriers to completing education and training.
  • Employment: This category seeks to fund initiatives that improve employment prospects for people in the Broadmeadows area. This may be via special skills/apprenticeship/traineeship initiatives or other innovative programs that facilitate employment outcomes.
  • Support for early childhood and families: This category seeks to fund initiatives specifically targeted at early childhood (under five years of age) and/or families. The types of projects that may be considered include those that improve language, literacy and learning outcomes for children and families or other innovative programs that enrich the lives of young children and their families.
