Applications for Mildura Rural City Council’s latest round of funding grants are open until the middle of August, providing opportunities for community groups to apply for thousands of dollars for their projects or initiatives.
The latest round includes the new-look Community Grant program which combines what were previously known as the Community Project, Environmental Project and Arts Development grants into the one program.
Up to $10,000 is available through this program, which is open to not-for-profit community groups, taking in a very broad range of potential initiatives. Examples include:
- Establishment of arts groups and/or support for existing groups
- A heritage or environmental trail
- Online educational resources and training
- Re-vegetation activities
- Creative Arts Industries and design projects
- Energy audits or works to improve energy efficiency
- Solar installation on community buildings
- Projects that build social and cultural connections, or enhance health and well-being
- Projects that support inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering.
