Local grants up for grabs
  • Wednesday 22 July 2009

Community groups and individuals interested in applying for funding under Sunshine Coast Regional Council’s Grants Program or the Regional Arts Development Fund can attend both free information sessions and application clinics beginning in August.

Council’s Grants Program provides a range of grants to community groups and individuals for various programs, projects and events.

Additional arts development funding is available to locals through RADF – a partnership between council and the Queensland Government to support the development of quality arts and arts practice in the region.

Council is running a series of free information sessions on both programs from 4 to 13 August at Landsborough, Cooroy, Nambour, Noosa, Kenilworth and Kawana, at which community groups and individuals can find out all about the programs.

In addition, grant application clinics will be held at Nambour, Noosa and Caloundra from 24 August to 2 September. Potential applicants can give themselves the best chance of success by making a booking to meet with a council grants officer and work through their application.

The next funding round for both programs closes on 15 September 2009.

The previous round of council’s Grants Program provided funding for 86 projects around the region.
