Published: 04 Mar 2022

Community groups may feel a little foolish if they let April 1 pass by without applying for a council Community Grant.

All up, $189,000 is up for grabs in the latest funding round which will close at midnight April Fools’ Day (Friday, April 1).

Grants can be used by groups for a range of activities, purchases and projects.

Funding is available for small equipment (up to $1500), community initiatives, programs, events and upgrades (up to $7500) and minor infrastructure and assets (up to $30,000).

This means grants can be used for everything from buying simple office equipment to infrastructure projects, including concept development, as well as the purchase of large equipment, like vehicles.

This gives tremendous flexibility to community clubs and not-for-profit groups needing financial assistance.
