CALLING FOR APPLICATIONS FOR CITY’S COMMUNITY GRANTS PROGRAM
Local community groups and organisations can apply for a grant of up to $5,000 through the City of Greater Bendigo’s 2011/2012 Community Grants Program.
City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Rod Fyffe said funding is available in the Cultural, Community Events Community Assistance, Recreation and Environmental Sustainability categories.
“The City of Greater Bendigo Community Grants Program is open to applications from community groups, clubs and associations to assist them to undertake projects, events, exhibitions and performances that will contribute to our vibrant community.”
“Council has made available $224,000 this financial year for the Grants Program and I encourage local organisations who may wish to access funding assistance to start working on their applications well before applications close on Friday 9 September 2011.
“Council’s Community Grants Program has assisted hundreds of local organisations to undertake an array of fantastic projects and initiatives over many years and I encourage all interested in applying to read the criteria carefully so they can determine the appropriate category for their application,” said Cr Fyffe.
Further information can be obtained by contacting Craig Wright on 5434 6463 or by visiting www.bendigo.vic.gov.au. Application forms and a separate guideline document are available on line or from City of Greater Bendigo offices in Bendigo and Heathcote.
