Or­gan­is­ers of com­mu­nity projects are be­ing en­cour­aged to ap­ply for the lat­est rounds of the Re­gional Grants Scheme and Com­mu­nity Chest Fund which both opened this month.

Dave Grills, Na­tion­als MLC for the Min­ing and Pas­toral Re­gion, said the pro­grams sup­ported lo­cal projects that helped to pro­vide improved fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices in re­gional com­mu­ni­ties.

“The grant pro­grams pro­vide vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions, ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions with grants of up to $50,000 for CCF, and from $50,001 to $300,000 for RGS,” he said.

“This fund­ing sup­ports re­gion­spe­cific projects that are driven by lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to as­sist the de­vel­op­ment of in­fra­struc­ture and ser­vices that help to build vi­brant re­gions.”

Mr Grills said the out­comes of these projects improved the qual­ity of life in re­gional com­mu­ni­ties and helped to at­tract in­vest­ment and cre­ate jobs.

Projects re­quest­ing fund­ing un­der $50,000 should ap­ply through the Com­mu­nity Chest Fund. Projects re­quest­ing fund­ing be­tween $50,001 and $300,000 should ap­ply through the RGS.
