2018 ClubGRANTS funding opening soon
Published Monday, 29th January 2018
Community organisations can soon apply for project funding that will address local priorities in the community.
Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said the 2018 ClubGRANTS funding, which will open on 1 February and close on 3 April, would assist organisations to deliver successful projects that will achieve positive outcomes for the Fairfield City community.
“The 2018 ClubGRANTS will provide organisations with a grant for community development projects that cover community welfare and social services, community health services and employment assistance activities,” Mayor Carbone said.
“The projects must address local priorities which range from access and inclusion to education and employment, helping improve the livelihood and wellbeing for a number of Fairfield City residents.”
“Last year more than 100 projects were provided $1.8m in funding, and supported people from all walks of life, including newly arrived refugee children through a school transition program to shuttle buses for multicultural seniors, carers and people with disability.”
To assist organisations with their grant applications, Council will host an information session which covers the following topics:
- Changes and update to the online submission program
- How to find the local priorities
- How to complete application, budget and work plan
- How to maximise your chances of funding success
- Feedback on previous submissions
The information session will be held at Council’s Administration Building in Wakeley on Wednesday 14 February, 9.30am-12.30pm or 5.30pm-8.30pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
