The latest round of Mount Alexander Shire Council’s Events and Community Grants will open at the end of January, with drop-in information sessions planned for groups and individuals to learn more about the program.

“We have an incredibly talented and dedicated community who create wonderful activities and events. Our grants program allows us to support these groups and programs,” said Lisa Knight, Director Corporate and Community Services.

Council offers two categories under its Community Grants Program – small grants of up to $3,000 and larger partnership grants of up to $10,000. The partnership grants must involve at least three partners.

Event grants are available for up to $3,000. Council’s Venues and Events Team can also provide advice and guidance on the best way to navigate logistic or regulatory requirements. Please note the grants are intended for events held in the second half of the year.

“In the past we’ve supported all kinds of events like Maldon Twilight Dinner, Castlemaine Rotary Truck Show and Newstead Live. Some of our community grants went to projects such as a Mental Illness Awareness Project, Digitising Newstead’s History and a Fruit Fly Citizen Science program,” said Ms Knight.

“We’re always looking for exciting and interesting projects to support so please visit our website or come along to a drop in session to learn more,” she said.

Drop in sessions will be held:

• 10.00am to 12noon on Tuesday 28 January at the Ray Bradfield Room, Victory Park, Castlemaine.
• 5.00pm to 6.00pm on Tuesday 28 January at the Civic Centre, Castlemaine.
• 10.00am to 12noon on Thursday 30 January at the Maldon Community Centre.

Bookings are not required. Find information and application forms at www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/Grants.
