With a total grant pool of $100,000, applications are now open for $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000 grant opportunities from the public transport network.
Projects or initiatives must support wellness, education and support services within the local community.
Last year, Metro’s grants program helped community organisations including cohealth and the Les Twentyman Foundation to implement important mental health initiatives.
Over the past four years, Metro’s community grants program has provided $360,000 to community organisations.
Metro Train chief executive Raymond O’Flaherty said the grants can make a significant difference to local communities.
“We know mental health continues to be an ongoing challenge for our community which is why Metro’s community grants program is supporting not-for-profit organisations implement some important initiatives,” he said.
Successful applicants will be announced in June.
