Community Grant recipients 2022

Community grants

Assisting our region’s communities is a long-standing priority for Bell Bay Aluminium. Our annual Community Grants Program supports Tasmanian communities to build and strengthen connections.

Bell Bay Aluminium runs an annual grant program, offering assistance to community groups and organisations across Tasmania.

We provide financial support to organisations that positively support their community in key social, environmental and economic focus areas. The grants help these organisations provide sustainable services that enhance wellbeing and strengthen community connections well beyond the grant funding.

We annually offer grants of up to $3,000 for community organisations based in Tasmania to help fund projects across the state that will have a significant positive impact on local communities.

Our annual Community Grants Program focuses investment across key areas informed by socioeconomic data and community plans that align with Bell Bay Aluminium’s values and objectives.

Applicants select from focus areas that most closely align with their organisation's project, purpose, values, objectives and ethos, explaining how they meet each eligibility criteria. Applicants may select as many focus areas as are relevant from:

  • Education
  • Environment
  • Inclusion & Diversity
  • Culture & Heritage
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Economic

2023 Community Grant Recipients

Bell Bay Aluminium will award over $60,000 in new community grants to help support a wide range of community projects and initiatives across Tasmania.

Community groups and not-for-profit organisations were able to apply for up to $3,000 under the smelter’s annual grant program.

General Manager Richard Curtis said there was a strong response to the grant program from the community.

“With almost 90 organisations submitting applications for worthy projects, it was a tough role for our team members who put their hand up to form our assessment panel.

“I am delighted that in 2023 we can support 27 organisations with funding for projects and initiatives that represent the diverse needs of our local communities across Tasmania in key social, environmental, and economic focus areas.
