Community Development Fund, opening soon!

Community groups will soon be able to apply for up to $5,000 from Swan Hill Rural City Council’s Community Grants program, due to open on Monday, 2 May 2022.

The Community Development Fund assists eligible community groups and organisations to undertake a variety of projects.

Swan Hill Rural City Council Director Development and Planning, Heather Green said Council hoped the grants program would make a big difference to local clubs and communities and enable improved community facilities across the municipality.

“Last year, over 40 community groups received funding from Council’s Community Grants Program for building updates, new equipment, events and volunteer support.

“Funding went to diverse projects from right across our municipality.

Ms Green encouraged all groups and organisations to consider applying this year.

“Grants like this support community groups and organisations to undertake projects and activities that encourage participation in social activities, improve our local facilities and contribute to the wellbeing of our community,” she said.
