Murrumbidgee Council Community Grants Fund Round 2

7 March 2017 - Media Release

Murrumbidgee Council is pleased to announce that Round 2 of the Community Grants Fund (CGF) will open on Monday 13 March.

Last November, Council allocated $1 million to 33 projects under Round 1, which are now at various stages of implementation.

The Community Grants Program Round 2 will allocate up to $500,000 in grants to incorporated not-for-profit community groups, for projects that build more vibrant, sustainable and inclusive local communities.

The maximum grant allocation available per project approval is $50,000, with all applications to be assessed by a Fund Assessment Panel established by Council.

On the recommendation of the Assessment Panel six projects amounting to $264,000 that were submitted under Round 1, will be considered together with any new applications received.

Administrator Austin Evans is encouraging eligible community groups to apply.

“These grants are a great way for groups to ease the financial burden associated with delivering projects or purchasing new equipment,” he said.

“We look forward to receiving strong applications that will produce some positive outcomes for our communities.

“Round 1 was extremely popular so I’m pleased to be able to announce this additional funding.”

Application forms are available from the three branch offices or can be downloaded below.

Completed application forms need to be received at Murrumbidgee Council by 5pm Monday 24 April 2017.
