Did you know Mount Alexander Shire Council has an online tool to help community groups, not-for-profits and local businesses tap into grant funding and coronavirus (COVID-19) support initiatives?

Mount Alexander Grant Connect provides a comprehensive list of grants and funding opportunities available Australia-wide to suit your project.

The online tool provides information on how grants work, who can receive them and how to get started with tips for grant writing. Simply sign up to receive the free service which has been recently updated to include a quick list of coronavirus funding available to Victorians.

“We know many people in our community are always looking at ways to make a project happen or how to take that business idea to the next level,” said Karen Evennett, Grants Coordinator, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“Grants Connect will benefit community groups, sports clubs and creatives, as well as a variety of businesses from sole traders, small start-ups and larger manufacturing or agricultural businesses,” said Ms Evennett.

“The impact of COVID-19 has put even more financial pressure on everyone and the website now includes a good summary of financial support available for individuals too.”

All you need to do is register and start searching. Set up your favourites and sign up for email alerts to receive relevant grant opportunities straight to your inbox.

The register includes a difficulty rating for each type of grant, and a network of service providers who can help with your grant application if needed.

To register and check out grants available visit: https://mountalexander.grantguru.com.au/ or visit www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/CommunityGrants.
