Supporting the locals
Mayor Cr Michael Leaney said, "I look forward to this program each year. It is all about supporting our local people to deliver local projects that have an invaluable effect on our local community."
"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." Cr Leaney concluded.
