Grants for Alpine Relief Announced
Fourteen local organisations and businesses are set to benefit in $30,500 worth of funding from Into Our Hands Community Foundation following a recent grants round for bushfires and COVID-19 affected organisations.
The funding will support projects such as a new safety beacon for Mt Hotham to enhance safety measures for back country users, programs to encourage Alpine recreation and tourism, emergency disaster relief through Anglicare for food, travel and fuel vouchers, through to community events such as The Winterwords Festival in Beechworth and the Dederang Community Race Day- just to name some of the successful grant recipients.
The grants were made possible thanks to generous donations from partners, Amer Sports and their Alpine Relief Auction and Global Giving Foundation who wanted funding to be directed to Alpine communities impacted most by Covid 19 lockdowns and the 2020 Bushfires.
