Community Encouraged to apply for Round Two Council Grants

Posted on 23 Nov 2018

Round two of Greater Shepparton City Council’s 2018/19 grants programs will open from 1 November and the community is encouraged to take a look at the range on offer and make an application.

The Our Sporting Future, Community Arts Grants, Small and Large Event Grants, Community Matching Grants and Community Sustainability Grants are all currently open for application until 5.00pm Monday 4 February 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 and will start after 17 April 2019.

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