Community Grants program opening for 2022
Published on 25 January 2022
Community groups, individuals and not-for profit organisations in the Glenelg Shire are invited to make their project a reality through Council’s Community Grants Program.
Grant applications for round two of the 2021-2022 Community Grants Program open from Monday 31 January, with applications accepted until 5pm, Monday 21 February 2022.
The grant categories include recreation, public halls, community strengthening, community events and arts culture and heritage.
Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank said community organisations were the lifeblood of the region, with grant funding ensuring many innovative activities and programs could be realised.
“Council is incredibly proud of its Community Grants Program, which has helped hundreds of local not-for-profit groups, committees, clubs and organisations bring their ideas to life,” she said.
“In the past we’ve allocated funding to projects for new hall seating, clubroom refurbishments, sporting equipment, multimedia supplies, marketing and logistical costs for events.
“I hope to see a diverse range of applications for this funding round, supporting community-led projects from all corners of the shire.”
Applications for round two of the 2021-2022 Community Grants Program can be completed and submitted online.
Applicants can apply for grants for up to $1,000 without any co-contribution. All funding amounts requested between $1,000 - $5,000 require a dollar for dollar contribution.
Potential applicants are reminded to refer to the Community Grants Guidelines to assess their eligibility to apply. All organisations and groups are strongly encouraged to discuss their projects with the relevant council officer prior to submitting their application.
Guidelines can be downloaded from the Community Grants section of Council’s website.
