Community encouraged to apply for Community Grants Round 1 2019/20

Round One of Greater Shepparton City Council’s 2019/20 grants programs will open on Monday 1 July, with a range of different grants available for the community.

The Our Sporting Future, Community Arts Grants, Minor and Major Event Grants, Community Matching Grants, Australia Day 2020 Grants, Small Towns Festive Events Grants and Community Sustainability Grants are all currently open for application until 5.00pm Monday 5 August 2019.

Greater Shepparton City Council Director Sustainable Development Geraldine Christou said the grants are a great opportunity for the community to obtain financial assistance for projects, activities or events that need funding.

“Council provides assistance to community organisations for worthwhile projects that meet the criteria,” Mrs Christou said.

“There are lots of small groups in our municipality that could do with a helping hand and we are keen to provide funds to see some of these projects get off the ground.”

Greater Shepparton City Council will hold a public information session on 22 July, where residents can hear about the different grants available.

If anyone is interested to discuss their application directly with Council’s Grants Coordinator they can phone (03) 5832 5218 to make an appointment.
