Phosphate Resources Limited (PRL) is pleased to announce its new community development program ‘Our Community, Our Future’

Phosphate Resources plays a vital role in sustaining Christmas Island’s economic wellbeing and is dedicated to developing a sustainable future for Christmas Island. Through our new program, we continue our efforts to help maintain a strong and stable community into the future. The program has four streams:

  • Sponsorship and Donations; focussed on sporting clubs and events, history, art and culture. 
  • Community Programs; supporting seniors, education, youth and the environment. 
  • Community Care; arising from the COVID 19 pandemic we have developed a Community Care stream which provides support for seniors and vulnerable residents, small business and tourism. 
  • Community Futures; designed to support economic sustainability, through food production, competitive shipping and logistics and tourism development. 

Over $200,000 in funding has already been allocated to the Sponsorship and Donations, Community Programs and Community Care streams for the 2020-21 financial year. 

The community is invited to apply for grants under the Sponsorship and Donations and Community Programs streams as of today, with applications open Wednesday 20th May 2020. Click here to download the application form.

Further information regarding the Community Futures and Community Care streams will be released in the coming weeks.
