Community Matching Grants Round Two – 2018/19

Greater Shepparton City Council approved the recommendation to financially assist 13 local community projects under the Community Matching Grants Scheme at the May Ordinary Council Meeting.


Round Two of the 2018/2019 scheme will see a total of $41,012.91, GST inclusive, distributed throughout the region.

Community Matching Grants are designed to support projects from the Greater Shepparton community which:

  • Build new social connections and partnerships within communities, or reinforce those that already exist
  • Allow participation in a community activity, at all stages of the project from planning to completion
  • Enable community members to acquire or develop a new skill
  • Create, renew or revitalise places and spaces within the community.

Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor, Cr Kim O’Keeffe, congratulated all the groups and clubs that submitted eligible applications.

“Council was pleased to approve the financial assistance of projects all around the region via the Community Matching Grants Scheme,” Cr O’Keeffe said.

“Round Two of the scheme brings the total number of community projects assisted by Council to 229 with a total investment from Council of $505,104 since its inception in 2011.”

Each project under the Community Matching Grants Scheme is required to provide a matching component of the total project cost, either through a cash or in-kind (material or labour) contribution.
