Kimba Community Sponsorship Program

The Kimba community neighbours the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility. We welcome opportunities to sponsor community activities in Kimba that provide a tangible benefit to the community.

The Kimba community neighbours the acquired site for the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility.

We may sponsor an activity that:

  • supports our community engagement activities
  • provides a tangible benefit to the community.

Through sponsorship, we aim to engage with the community to:

  • build stronger relationships
  • promote and increase understanding of our role
  • strengthen our social licence
  • support social cohesion.

Up to $2,000 is available for successful applicants.
