Making the region better

South Gippsland Shire Council Mayor, Mohya Davies said, "The Community Grants program is the most direct way that council supports our community to pursue their projects."

"While over $220,000 was allocated to the successful applicants, I believe it is much more than that. In total, these projects contributed over $1 million directly into our local community, but it is about more than the dollar amount - the impact these projects have on our community cannot be quantified."

"I would like to congratulate once again the successful applicants of the 2021/22 Community Grants program and encourage you to spread the word about the program. It takes a lot of time and effort to apply, but the work that is done because of these funding opportunities makes our region better." Mayor Davies concluded.
