Grants available for community projects in Greater Bendigo

Applications will soon open for the next round of the City of Greater Bendigo’s Community Grants Program.

Grants of up to $5000 will be made available for projects regarding active and healthy lifestyles, arts, community development, community events, environmental sustainability, and print and digital publications.

Acting community wellbeing director Caroline Grylls said a survey showed the grants helped local groups undertake a range of initiatives.

Grant application workshops will be held on January 30 at noon and 8pm.

The workshops will provide tips on finding grant opportunities offered by the council and other organisations, plus how to give applications the best chance of success.

Applications will open on February 1 and close on February 22.

To RSVP to a workshop, call 5434 6214 or email grants@bendigo.vic.gov.au.
