Grants open soon
COMMUNITY groups will soon be able to apply for round one of Moyne Shire council’s 2023-24 Community Assistance Fund.
Applications for this first round will open on Tuesday, August 1 and close on Monday, September 11.
The popular annual program aims to build stronger communities and deliver benefits to residents and visitors through grants to community-led projects and facility improvements.
Mayor Karen Foster said the community assistance fund was one of her favourite council programs and she encouraged all eligible community groups to consider applying.
“This will help us support even more groups in our community with their important work,” she said.
“Drop-in sessions have been scheduled where people can learn more about the program and I’d encourage groups to attend.
“There are four different funding streams available, so it’s really important that people head online to read the eligibility criteria.”
A mandatory requirement for all groups wishing to apply is that they must first speak with a council program officer before lodging an application.

Drop-in sessions will be held at the Reardon Theatre in Port Fairy on Monday, July 31 from 11am-1pm and in the foyer of the Koroit theatre on Tuesday, August 1 from 4pm-6pm.
