Grant applications close soon - don't miss out
Published on 21 February 2020
Applications are still open for our Community Strengthening Program – Minor Grants up to $5,000 as well as the exciting one-off opportunity to apply for an Arts and Culture grant of up to $10,000.
These two grant streams aim to provide funding for projects, events, equipment, health promotion and environmental sustainability.
Mayor Libro Mustica said the Community Strengthening Grant Program was a great way to kick start a community initiative and people should apply now.
“Community grants help develop projects which enrich the whole community and are a vital function of Moira Shire Council,” Cr Mustica said.
“Our one-off Arts and Culture Grants are particularly exciting as they are specifically for the support of community organisations to deliver locally relevant arts and culture projects.
“These projects could include holding skills development workshops, hosting music or art events and exhibitions, or workshops with community public art outcomes.”
Cr Mustica said the Community Strengthening Grants can be used to fund equipment, upgrading of facilities, health promotion and environmental sustainability.
“You can apply online by visiting our website and if you require assistance in either planning your project or completing your application for council officers are here to help,” he said.
“Information sessions will be held from 10am until 2pm today, Wednesday 26 February, at the Cobram Library and then again tomorrow, Thursday 27 February, at Yarrawonga Neighbourhood House.
“If you require access to a computer, libraries across the shire have computers available for public use.”
Applications close 5pm Friday 13 March 2020.
