GRANT FUNDING FROM TLAP

 In Our Community

In October last year an opportunity was extended to Port Pirie Kindergartens, Early Learning Centres and Playgroups to access grant funding of up to $1000 (incl GST) for an initiative, or suite of initiatives, that will assist reduce lead exposure pathways in local facilities.

There was a 100% take-up rate on the grant funding and a range of different items request and a lot of thought went into how the funding would make positive difference.

Items which will be grant funded include but are not limited to:

  • Outdoor tables & chairs for eating off of.
  • Outdoor toy storage boxes (replace existing)
  • Outdoor shed for storage of outdoor play equipment
  • Shelving for outdoor sheds & storage boxes for outdoor use
  • Replace bark chips/soft fall
  • Vacuum cleaner & sand pit covers & outdoor storage boxes
  • Artificial Turf

This grant funding opportunity has been made possible via an arrangement between Nyrstar and David Cretan of Food Plus where by monies raised from on-site food vending machines is being donated back to the community for TLAP initiatives.

A co-contribution from TLAP has ensured we are able to increase the number of facilities who can participate in this grant funding initiative.
