Stroud: community funding round opens

MidCoast Council

The Stroud community can apply for funding through the Duralie Community Fund for projects which will benefit local education, environment, health, infrastructure, arts, leisure and cultural heritage.

Not-for-profit organisations and community groups in the vicinity of the Duralie Mine are invited to apply for funding between $5,000 and $50,000 for projects which will enhance community life.

The funding round will open on Monday 24 May, and organisations can apply online via the Duralie Community Fund application form before Friday 18 June 2021 at our Grants page.

Funds for successful projects will be available in July.

A community funding round was last offered in 2018, and the funds assisted with the completion of works at Stroud Showground in the interim.

Previous funding has provided many projects in Stroud and surrounding areas, including the now completed Stroud Showground upgrades, the provision of an accessible unisex toilet at Allen Park, upgrades to community facilities and purchases of equipment.

“The Duralie Community Fund offers a valuable opportunity to enrich community facilities and deliver projects that have lasting benefit for the Stroud area,” said Council’s Director of Liveable Communities, Paul De Szell.

Visit the link above to check if your organisation or project is eligible and apply before Friday 18 June.
