Community grants available

14 May 2013

The City of Melbourne has opened its community grants program for 2014, with $900,000 available to non-for-profit community groups throughout the municipality.

Community groups can apply for up to $20,000 worth of funding.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the grants were important for the city and helped contribute to its diversity.

“The City of Melbourne is home to more than 93,000 people and hundreds of community organisations, all striving to make Melbourne a great place to live,” Cr Doyle said.

Councillor Richard Foster also encouraged locals to get involved, saying: “The 2014 grants program will create opportunities for the municipality’s residents to join in, enjoy city life and contribute to Melbourne’s safety, health and happiness.”

Applications for the grants are open until June 17. For more information head to www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/grantsandsponsorship
