Wingecarribee Shire Mayor Councillor Juliet Arkwright is urging local community groups to apply for funding under the Wingecarribee ClubsGrants Scheme.

“I encourage all local not-for-profit community organisations across the Shire to take advantage of this scheme and apply for essential funding,” she said.

Under the scheme, local not-for-profit community groups may apply for funding for local projects that fall within the five priority areas of Older people, Young people, People with a disability and Addressing disadvantage.

“Whilst only a relatively small grants program, we encourage all interested parties to submit an application regardless of the size of their project,” said Councillor Arkwright and Committee Chair.

“Monies can be sought to fund programs and activities for the local community.

“Successful projects will be selected by the committee based on criteria, eligibility and ultimate funding.”

“The Wingecarribee ClubsGrants Scheme is a fantastic opportunity for community groups to raise the profile of their group or project which may otherwise struggle to get off the ground,” Councillor Arkwright added.

“And ultimately, all the projects funded are for the betterment of the entire community.”

Applications are available from the Clubs NSW, Moss Vale Services Club, Mittagong RSL and Wingecarribee Shire Council websites.

The Wingecarribee ClubsGrants Scheme is open from Monday 24 March to Monday 5 May 2014.
