Local clubs and community groups provide a wealth of different activities and services to residents of our region, which is why Council is encouraging them to apply in the latest round of the Livingstone Community Grants.
The Livingstone Community Grants, proudly supported by Livingstone Shire Council, Inverness Yeppoon and Keppel Bay Sailing Club, provides funding to community groups and sporting clubs to deliver innovative projects and programmes which respond to local community needs.
Community Development and Support Councillor Jan Kelly said the current round, opening on Monday 24 June, 2019 will provide up to $2,000 to successful applications from not-for-profit community groups and sporting clubs.
“These grants provide a wonderful opportunity for groups of all sizes and causes, to obtain financial support towards projects that help to keep them up and running efficiently, or add new functions to their capabilities,” Cr Kelly said.
“Applicants must meet the eligibility criteria, be operating within the Livingstone Shire Council's Local Government Area, and providing programmes, outcomes or activities which benefit residents and improve overall community well-being.”
Now that Livingstone Community Grants are administered through the Smarty Grants online platform, Cr Kelly said local clubs and community groups are encouraged to attend the free information session being held next week.
“This will assist applicants in gaining a greater understanding of the grants process and assist groups to submit the best application possible,” Cr Kelly said.
“Groups are invited to attend the Livingstone Community Grants Education Session to be held on Tuesday, 25 June from 6pm at the Community Education Room in the ‘The Hub’ Beaman Park, Yeppoon,” Cr Kelly said.
