Have you got one? A good idea that’ll enhance our city…. Well, you may be able to make your community-focused project happen with a community grant from Redland City Council.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams says the first round of community grants opens next month Monday 16 July, closing Friday 17 August, with assistance available under the categories of Organisation Support, Project Support, Conservation Support and Capital Infrastructure.
“Every year, Council provides more than $500,000 in grants and sponsorship to help local organisations, community groups and individuals make a difference.”
“This year we would like to especially encourage applicants under the category of Conservation Support so if you have an on-the-ground environmental project you would like to see up and running make sure you apply.”
Mayor Williams also encourages applicants with projects that could help support Council’s recently endorsed City brand.
“The new place brand for the City, Redlands Coast – Naturally Wonderful, sees us embark on a new journey to deliver sustainable economic development of the city, through tourism and events and industry and connectivity.”
“There is strong competition for funding so please visit our website while submissions are open to see if we can help you help the community.”
Applications for this round of community grants will be accepted from Monday 16 July until Friday 17 August 2018 in the following categories:
- Organisation Support Grant – for projects associated with becoming more sustainable and improving capacity to deliver services.
- Project Support Grant – for projects that deliver short-to-medium term positive outcomes for the community.
- Conservation Grants – for conservation projects that benefit the environment and wildlife.
Applications for the next round of Sponsorship will be accepted from Monday 6 August until Friday 7 September 2018 and will support community-based activities and events that provide measurable benefits to Council.
