Second round of grants program announced

Monday, 28 August, 2017 

Community groups, event organisers and everyday Strathbogie Shire residents have another chance to apply for Council’s 2017-18 community grants program.

Council has awarded close to $30,000 to community groups as part of the 2017 -2018 Community Grants Program.

The entire grant funding allocation, worth $56,500 was spread out into four categories: Community Matching Grants, Events Grants, Quick Response Grants and the William Pearson Bequest.

Eight applications were received and the successful grant recipients were:

  • Nagambie Mechanics Institute – sanding and re-sealing of the hall flooring - $4450
  • Strathbogie Golf Club – outdoor furniture and BBQ - $3140
  • Euroa Agricultural Society – NR Ralston Pavilion, flexible exhibition and event improvements - $5000

  • Violet Town Business Group (auspiced by VTAG) – The Nightmare Continues - $3000
  • Euroa Citizens Band – funding stipends for musical directors and some annual expenditure - $2500

Due to there being significant funding still available Council have decided to offer Strathbogie Shire residents another opportunity to benefit from community grant funding with a second round opening on Monday, 11 September 11, 2017.

Mayor Amanda McClaren encouraged all Strathbogie Shire residents and community groups to take advantage of this second round of the Community Grants Program.

 "Council’s Community Grants Program is very worthwhile as it gives residents from all walks of life a chance to complete a project that may have been in the pipeline for a long time or to make community events the best they can be, supporting social cohesion," Cr McClaren said.

"I strongly encourage anyone to apply for either a Community Matching Grant or Events Grant before October 27 this year."

This round will be open for applications for Community Matching Grants and Events Grants only and will close on Friday, 27 October, 2017.

Quick Response Grants will continue to be open at any time for applications.
