Sunshine Coast not-for-profit community groups are encouraged to act quickly if they are interested in applying for a grant of up to $2000 through council’s Minor Community Grants Program.
Perhaps your not-for-profit group wants to develop a creative or community event, needs to update equipment or improve facilities.
If so, make sure you apply for a Minor Community Grant before midnight on Monday, November 5.
Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said community groups could apply for a grant to assist with projects that benefit Sunshine Coast communities.
“A great example of a successful recipient from our minor grants program is Sunshine Coast First Aid Volunteers who purchased new equipment,” Cr Jenny McKay said.
“This project greatly improved the organisation’s capacity to respond to emergencies at events, helping to enhance community safety in the region and to support our local activities.
“The grants are a great way for all sorts of community groups to obtain funding to help with their smaller, but important projects.
“If you’re considering a grant for your community group, please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and give our grants officers a call.”
Community groups can apply for funding for one-off projects through one of seven categories:
- Community Development
- Community Facilities
- Cultural Development
- Cultural Heritage
- Economic Development
- Sport, Recreation and Healthy Living
- Community Events.
