Community groups across the Shire were big winners at the Council meeting last night with six applications recommended for full funding and one recommended for partial funding. A total of over $13,000 has been allocated across the successful applicants. Eleven applications were received in total with four applications assessed as not eligible/unsuccessful.
Mayor, Cr Lesley Hewitt, said that eligible community groups can access funds in four rounds annually across five categories that support a range of community needs.
“Community grants allow community groups to fund projects that they may not have been able to deliver without support. It is an important way that Council invests in and supports the community,” said Cr Hewitt.
