Com­mu­nity grant ses­sions

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hor­sham district com­mu­nity groups have an in­vi­ta­tion to learn more about Hor­sham Ru­ral City Coun­cil’s com­mu­nity grants pro­gram.

The coun­cil has or­gan­ised half-hour in­for­ma­tion ses­sions at Hor­sham Civic Cen­tre, at 7pm on Tues­day, and noon and 1pm on Fe­bru­ary 15.

The pro­gram, open for ap­pli­ca­tions, helps groups im­prove fa­cil­i­ties and pro­mote en­gaged and healthy com­mu­ni­ties.

Mayor Pam Clarke said grants of up to $10,000 would be avail­able.

“The pro­gram caters for sorts of projects,” she said.

“Whether a group needs a cou­ple of hun­dred dol­lars for some­thing small, or is look­ing at a much big­ger project, we’d en­cour­age them to take a look at the guide­lines to see how the coun­cil might be able to as­sist.

Last year the coun­cil dis­trib­uted grants and dona­tions to the value of $325,000.
