Council calls for community grant applications

THE Derwent Valley Council has opened the latest round of its community grants program. Not-for-profit sporting, cultural and community groups within the Derwent Valley Municipal area are invited to apply for assistance in cash or in-kind under this program.

The council says it will give preference to projects and proposals that have broad community benefit. Under the new policy adopted this year, there is a limit of one application per organisation or group for each financial year. Projects that support the recurrent operations of the applicant are not eligible.

This year's council budget has allocated $20,000 to the community grants program, which is an increase of $8000 on last year.

Applications close on October 18, 2019. More information including application forms, eligibility criteria and guidelines can be downloaded from
