Community education programs

There is funding available to ensure all the Victorian community receives information about energy and pricing choice, for example the Energy Information Fund.

What's the Energy Information Fund?

The Energy Information Fund provides grants of up to $120,000 to not-for-profit organisations. These grants are for projects that assist Victorians that may not be reached by mainstream information campaigns to make informed decisions about electricity.
