MEDIA RELEASE - Community to share in $77k worth of projects

3 May 2018

More than $77,000 will be delivered back to community organisations across the Glenelg Shire as part of the latest funding round of council community grants for 2017-18.

Among the 36 beneficiaries from round two of the grant program was $5000 to the Casterton and District Drag Racing Club towards upgrading amenities, $2500 for a new observation deck at the Heywood Wagon Shed and $5000 for essential repairs and upgrades to the Nelson Community Hall.

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank congratulated all of the successful applicants.

“It is fantastic to see so many great applications continuing to come through to help support various projects in our community, resulting in $77,000 being delivered back to our townships,” she said.

“From facility upgrades, new equipment to event funding, the grants from this funding round will assist a broad sector of community groups to achieve a number of exciting projects for our shire.”

Cr Rank encouraged all eligible community groups and organisations to apply for the next round of community grants, which will open in July 2018.

“Council is incredibly proud of the community grants program, which supports grass-root activities, events and programs,” she said.

“If you have a community project in mind, make sure you consider submitting an application for a community grant. All applications, both great and small, are considered and with funding of $5000 available, this can mean the difference in a project or event succeeding.”

A presentation night will be held at Heywood council offices on Wednesday 2 May 2018 to formally announce the successful applicants.
