Supporting the locals

"Last year we granted over $140,000 in funding support to a diverse range of projects and upgrades all throughout the Shire. This year we want to beat that figure! I encourage all non-profit organisations, groups and associations across the Shire to investigate this grant opportunity and I look forward to seeing the array of applications that come through."
