Applications are now open for the first round of Redland City Council’s 2022-23 Community Grants program.
Mayor Karen Williams said the latest round of community grants would support a wide variety of projects and initiatives aimed at strengthening the Redlands Coast community.
“Council is proud to be able to partner with our local groups and individuals to support projects that deliver clear benefits to the community,” Cr Williams said.
“Last year, Council grants contributed to a variety of projects, from supporting Victoria Point Sharks Sporting Club to install turf wickets, Oaklands Street Community Gardens with all abilities access garden beds and Amity Point Fishing Club with a kids fishing and Indigenous culture tour.
“Council also supported coach and referee accreditation, board member induction training, strategic planning and website development for a number of sport and recreation clubs.
“The diversity of previous successful applicants illustrates the range of initiatives supported by our grants program.
“I urge anyone with a project or initiative that can deliver clear benefits to the broader community to apply.”
Council offers two rounds of community grants each financial year.
In the previous round, Council awarded more than $170,000 to 33 recipients, including $33,260 for organisation support, $92,267.98 for project support and $45,056.35 for conservation support.
A full list of all grant recipients and their projects is available on Council’s website.
Applications for the first round of 2022-23 Community Grants will be accepted until Sunday 28 August 2022.
The grants are available in three categories: organisation support (with funding up to $3000), project support and conservation (both with funding up to $10,000).
