$59,000 to communities from Council grants
Published 9 June 2022
Fifteen community groups and organisations benefited from two rounds of the Community Development and Event Grants.

On Wednesday night (8 June 2022), Council presented 15 community grants to deserving community projects and events, up to $59,000 in total.

A presentation for Round 1 winners could not take place earlier in the year due to COVID-19 restrictions, so instead all winners (from Round 1 and 2) were presented together this time.

The grants, which are for up to $5000 each, are a way of Council helping non-profit and non-government groups, clubs and organisations deliver new projects for the benefit of the local community.
