The 2022/23 Community Grants Program opens on June 1 for the month, closing on June 30.
Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks said the grants are available under five different categories to encourage as many projects and community ideas as possible.
The five grant categories are:
- Active and healthy communities
- Arts and culture
- Environment and sustainability
- Facilities and infrastructure; and
- Small projects
Cr Binks said the grants were a great way for organisations to invigorate their ideas and bring them to fruition.
“Whether it is a small request for grant funding or a larger request which is supported by other contributions, our Community Grant Program provides a great opportunity to achieve inspiring projects in any one of the categories listed,” she said.
Cr Binks extended an invitation to potential applicants to attend either an online or face-to-face workshop.
“Council will host two workshops to guide community members on how to prepare a grant application and answer any questions regarding the application process along with guidance on project suitability,” Cr Binks said.
The workshops will present the same content but offer two opportunities including:
- Online session – Wednesday 11 May, 2022, 5.30-6.30pm, access session via https://tinyurl.com/mr2cm8eh
- Face-to-face – Wednesday 25 May, 2022, 5.30-6.30pm, Council Offices, Binney St, Euroa
