Round one of the Toowoomba Regional Council’s Community Grant funding has been approved with 56 applicants set to receive allocations.
TRC Environment and Community Services Committee chair Cr James O’Shea said Council had endorsed the first round for the 2021/22 financial year at this week’s Ordinary Meeting of Council.
“This is a great program which gives local clubs and organisations a boost so they can continue delivering a valuable service to our community,” Cr O’Shea said.
“In total, $332,541.17 was approved, which will be a massive help to organisations throughout the Toowoomba Region.
“The Community Grant Program has helped a number of groups over the years. COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our clubs over the past 18 months, so it’s pleasing Council is able to provide assistance in this form.
