Community organisations across Moira Shire are encouraged to apply for a grant from Council's Festive Fund, which is now open.
The overall purpose of the grants program is to empower communities to take ownership of presentation of their town in the festive season, assist the community to reconnect and enjoy the festive season post COVID 19 lockdowns and to celebrate and recognise other culturally significant day/s in our communities.
There are three components to the Moira Festive Fund.
Up to $1,000 will be made available to organisations in small towns and up to $2,000 in the four major towns to decorate or run an event.
There will also be up to $1,000 to celebrate a culturally significant day.
This funding can be used in various ways including the purchase and installation of decorations; signage, banners and flags; hire of equipment; purchase of goods and services to hold an event; entertainment including music and lighting; promotions; and signage.
It is important to note there will only be one successful application per component, per town.
