Mi­nor grants clos­ing soon

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

SUN­SHINE Coast not-for-profit com­mu­nity groups are en­cour­aged to act quickly if they are in­ter­ested in ap­ply­ing for a grant of up to $2000 through coun­cil Mi­nor Com­mu­nity Grants Pro­gram.

Per­haps your not-for-profit group wants to de­velop a cre­ative or com­mu­nity event, needs to up­date equip­ment or im­prove fa­cil­i­ties.

If so, make sure you ap­ply for a Mi­nor Com­mu­nity Grant be­fore mid­night on Mon­day, Novem­ber 5.

Com­mu­nity Port­fo­lio Coun­cil­lor Jenny McKay said com­mu­nity groups could ap­ply for a grant to as­sist with projects that ben­e­fit Sun­shine Coast com­mu­ni­ties.

“A great ex­am­ple of a suc­cess­ful re­cip­i­ent from our mi­nor grants pro­gram is Sun­shine Coast First Aid Vol­un­teers who pur­chased new equip­ment,” Cr Jenny McKay said.

“This project greatly im­proved the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s ca­pac­ity to re­spond to emer­gen­cies at events, help­ing to en­hance com­mu­nity safety in the re­gion and to sup­port our lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties.

“The grants are a great way for all sorts of com­mu­nity groups to ob­tain fund­ing to help with their smaller, but im­por­tant projects.

“If you’re con­sid­er­ing a grant for your com­mu­nity group, please don’t hes­i­tate to pick up the phone and give our grants of­fi­cers a call.”
