Sup­port­ing kids

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
