Introduced in 2021-22, the Shire’s successful $1.135m grant program will be continued, with a number of different funding streams open to support community organisations, businesses and individuals. In addition to grants aimed at supporting community development, the local economy, environmental management, environmental stewardship, community halls, organisations and events, a new Community Sports and Recreation stream has been added for 2022-23.
The Community Sport and Recreation grants program is aimed at supporting the physical and mental health of our younger community, by offering financial assistance to lower income households. This funding stream builds on the State-run KidSport program, but opens the door to participation in activities which aren’t registered under the KidSport program.
