CBH Group has unveiled $150,000 to help 45 local organisations build infrastructure and hold events in regional WA through its ninth Grass Roots Community Grants program, taking the nine-year total to $2.35 million.

CBH chief external relations officer Brianna Peake said the program was designed to fill funding gaps for grassroots organisations, and went towards building better facilities and putting on events in grain growing communities.

“The grants have funded a variety of small-scale infrastructure projects,” Ms Peake said.

“This includes solar panels, playgrounds, gardens, toy libraries and water tanks ... as well as community events such as agricultural shows, music concerts and science workshops.

“We are extremely pleased to support this round of incredible projects that directly benefit growers and their communities as part of CBH’s Community Investment Fund.”

This year’s recipients include CWAs, Parents and Citizens Associations, sports clubs, RSLs, Community Resource Centres, and progress associations, among others.

Esperance-based Tor Youth Shed received $5000 to buy and install a new fence and gate, a welcome boon for the non-for-profit organisation that provides programs and activities for young adults.

Tor Youth Shed president Conrad Lowe said the infrastructure would increase safety for those visiting the facility.

A total 755 community events and projects across regional WA have benefited since the program was established in 2014, with the next funding round set to open on August 1.
