Council is calling for applications from eligible community groups from within the Wattle Range Council area for Round 1 of the 2016/17 Wattle Range Council Community Financial Assistance Grants program.
Applications are invited in two categories; the Community Financial Assistance Grants assisting in the development of a broad range of projects and events; and the Community Sports and Recreation Grants specifically aimed to assist development of sports and recreation projects or events.
Grants provided for any one project or event will be limited to $2,000 and will be offered on a dollar for dollar basis if they meet the set criteria.
“The grants programs allow Council to support local community and sporting groups in the purchase or upgrade of equipment and/or facilities or hosting of events to benefit our region,” Council CEO Mr Ben Gower said. “I encourage Community Groups with eligible projects to submit an application for consideration by Council.”
Application forms are available from Council offices in Millicent, Beachport and Penola, or can be downloaded from Council’s website at www.wattlerange.sa.gov.au and should be received by Council no later than 5 pm on Friday, 19 August 2016.
