TRC offering community grants to boost local groups, sports clubs

Community groups and sporting clubs across the Toowoomba region are encouraged to apply for funding for projects and initiatives through Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC).

Applications for Round 2 of TRC’s 2022/23 Community Support Grant Program open on Wednesday 1 February with groups given until 1 March to apply for funding.

TRC Environment and Community Portfolio Lead Cr Tim McMahon said the Community Support Grant Program had poured bucket loads of funds back into the community since its inception.

“If you’re involved in a not-for-profit community group or sporting club, I encourage you to apply for a TRC Community Support Grant.

“The grants are just one of the ways TRC supports the community with grants available of up to $2,500 twice annually through this program.

“Things such as upgrading facilities, increasing participation and facility usage, workshops and collaborations and fostering inclusiveness are all worthy of consideration through the grants process, Cr McMahon said.

TRC will continue its support of applicants by running a series of information sessions on how to apply and the sorts of projects that may be eligible.

The information sessions will include an overview of each grant program, available funding, eligibility criteria and the opportunity to discuss project ideas and receive guidance on the best grant to apply for and what to include in your application.

Information session times and locations are as follows:

  • Thornville Hall, Monday 30 January, 5.30pm-6.30pm
  • Wilson Heights Neighbourhood Centre, Wednesday 1 February, 5.30pm-6.30pm
  • Pampas Hall, Tuesday 7 February, 5.30pm-6.30pm; and
