Are you an enthusiastic and passionate member of your local community?
All eligible funding applications are reviewed through a fair and transparent panel process, which ensures local community involvement in how funds are allocated.
The Panels consist of a local council representative, members of the local community, and Pacific Hydro staff.
Panel members are required to complete between two – four hours of reading; and attend the Panel meeting itself, which normally lasts two – three hours (timing is dependent on the number of applications). Community members of the panel will be provided with a gift card in appreciation of their service.
Please note that prospective panel members must declare any conflict of interest they may have with an organisation that has applied for funding.
