Council provides grants as one-off financial assistance to not-for-profit organisations running local projects and activities, such as local and regional events, community development activities, community health initiatives, environment, and revitalisation of space and heritage projects.

Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor, Cr Kim O’Keeffe, said Council was pleased to continue its support for the local community.

“Council loves supporting local businesses, clubs, organisations and events,” Cr O’Keeffe said.

“The grants program supports established and emerging communities through activities, programs and events that contribute to community strengthening and bring social and economic returns to our region.

“I’d like to thank all those who applied for one of the many grants Council offers, and congratulate those who were successful.”
