The Mackay region is comprised of a mix of urban and rural areas each with a unique character and community. Council recognises that communities with a strong sense of place each have a unique attractiveness which can encourage people to live, work, play and visit. These places are drivers of economic development, are a source of community pride and enrich the quality of our lives.
The AMP! Activate My Place Program is offering grants to individuals or organisations to deliver programs, projects and/or events that enhance the amenity, activity and appearance of a place.
The Program seeks to support applicants to enhance a place to enable social and economic returns through projects such as public art, street art and events.
Applications are open from March 1 until April 30, 2018. Apply at https://mackay.smartygrants.com.au/.
