Applications for funding for 2024-25 are now open and groups seeking assistance for minor projects or purchases are encouraged to make a submission.

The well-subscribed annual program aims to build stronger communities and deliver benefits to residents and visitors through grants to community-led projects and facility improvements.

Moyne Shire mayor Cr Ian Smith said CAF is one of the most popular council programs and he encouraged all eligible community groups to consider applying.

“This fund helps us support a wide range of groups across the shire with their important work,” Cr Smith said.

“Grants of up to $3,000 are available for smaller community-based projects or activities, and up to $15,000 for larger purchases or capital works.

“There are four different funding streams available, so it’s important that people head online to read the eligibility criteria.”

One of the mandatory requirements is applicants must first speak with a council program officer before lodging their application.

Applications open Monday, July 8 and will close at 5pm on Friday, August 2.
