The community fund has been launched by leading Far North community development program provider, TRACQS, and is aimed at benefiting not only organisations and businesses but also individuals within the diverse communities of the western Tablelands region.

In alignment with their commitments to the Australian Government and the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA), TRACQS is dedicated to the pursuit of sustainable employment opportunities for job seekers, with the majority-owned indigenous organisation delivering services in over 20 regional and remote communities.

Under the banner of their ethos, “Leading the Way”, TRACQS has taken a significant step forward in giving back to the broader community, delivering high-quality pre and post-employment, along with training services, catering to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians throughout the western Tablelands.

Excited to play a role in enhancing the overall well-being and prosperity of the communities they serve, the TRACQS Community Fund is offering grants of up to $20,000 to assist in realising projects that create meaningful and measurable positive impacts.

Applications are open now and will close on Friday 10 November. The grant funding amounts of $20,000 are accessible to all individuals, organisations and businesses within TRACQS Community Development Program region of the western Tablelands.
