Applications are closing soon for Moira Shire Council’s Community Strengthening Program with Major Grants (up to $10,000) and Minor Grants (up to $5,000) on offer.
These grants aim to provide funding for art and culture projects, community events, equipment, health promotion, environmental sustainability, tourism and infrastructure.
Moira Shire Mayor Libro Mustica said the Community Strengthening Program was a great way to kick start a community initiative and urged individuals and organisations to apply now. “Community grants are a vital function of Moira Shire Council,” Cr Mustica said.
“They help facilitate projects which enrich the whole community and can assist in the development of service, management of facilities, coordination of events and promotion of tourism, environmental sustainability and health in the community.
“You can apply online by visiting our website and if you require assistance in either planning your project or completing your application form, council officers are here to help.”
If you require access to a computer, libraries and community houses across the shire have computers available for public use by appointment.
Applications close at 4pm on Wednesday, October 16.
