GREAT news has come to the young children of the community as the latest rounds of government funding has included The Isis Outside School Hours Care.
They will receive a one-off funding grant through the state government’s Department of Education and Training Small Assets Grant.
Member for Burnett Stephen Bennett said the after-hours care service would receive $23,100 to assist in upgrading their resources.
Small community groups struggle for assistance and funding.
Mr Bennett said the Small Assets Grant program was available for eligible Early Years Services to access a grant of up to $50,000 to purchase resources, transport solutions or undertake minor infrastructure upgrades.
The after-hours care service will now have the funds to improve services to the children.
Community grants and funding are available and Mr Bennett encourages groups and organisations around the region to apply for assistance and funding.
There are plenty of grants available to support local projects and organisations.
