Twenty Two community groups will share in over $70,000 for building upgrades, new equipment and volunteers support.
Swan Hill Rural City Council has announced the successful 2020/21 Community Grants Program recipients.
Council’s Director Development and Planning, Heather Green said she was impressed with the quality and diversity of projects that were put forward this year.
“Successful recipients came from right across our municipality and the projects vary greatly.
“These projects are a great reflection of the community and sporting groups who do such great work for the people of our region, offering opportunities to get involved and get active.”
Ms Green said council had received 39 applications under the program this year.
“It was great to see so many applications in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Swan Hill Field and Game President Dustin Lovell said his club was thrilled to be receiving funds for a new automatic clay target trap.
“Our club has been doing it tough recently with COVID-19 restrictions and the new trap will give our members a boost, as well as help us to attract them back,” Mr Lovell said.
“Successful applicants will contribute approximately $152,920 in cash, in-kind and sponsorship/other funding to match Council’s funds. Resulting in just over $242,000 worth of community projects being completed by the 14 June 2021,” she said.
“A broad cross-section of projects had been recommended for approval covering a number of townships throughout the municipality,” she added.
