The community is set to benefit from a wide range of community programs with more than 100 community organisations receiving a share in $1.8 million through the 2017 ClubGRANTS program.

Some 117 applications today received a share of the ClubGRANTS funding across Fairfield City.

“Congratulations to all the organisations on their successful applications. The number of submissions highlights the positive energy being invested back into our community through creative and engaging programs,” Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said.

“I look forward to seeing such a broad range of community programs in place that will help to improve the lives of those living and working in our great City.”

From refugee art projects, water safety classes for kindergarten students and several healthy breakfast initiatives at primary schools to Indigenous legal assistance and training opportunities for people with disability, the diversity of projects will help many different people. 

“On behalf of Council I would like to extend a thank you to all who expressed interest in the 2017 ClubGRANTS program,” Mayor Carbone said.

“I encourage organisations to apply for the next round of funding when that becomes available.”

This year, Council provided a list of local priorities to consider in applications, which included community welfare and social services, community development, health services and employment assistance.
