ClubGRANTS Applications for Community Projects and Services Open Now
Published on 27 May 2021
Applications for Category 1 ClubGRANTS are open now until Friday 18 June 2021, proudly hosted by Shoalhaven City Council. ClubGRANTS is one of Australia’s largest grant programs, providing more than $100 million in cash each year to a variety of worthy causes across NSW. Charities, sporting organisations and not-for-profit community groups are among the tens of thousands of worthy causes funded through the program each year.
Category 1 funding supports:
- community welfare and social services
- community development
- employment assistance activities
- community health services and projects aimed at improving the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people
Community organisations can apply for funding towards local community service needs and priorities.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said, “We’re proud to push up our sleeves and help with the application and assessment process for this worthy initiative which supports our commitment to making the Shoalhaven an inclusive, thriving community.”
Community sporting and cultural organisations are at the heart of many of our communities. ClubGRANTS aims to support our community to foster equity, social inclusion, and participation. The challenges of the last 18 months have had a significant impact on our communities and these grants will help these organisations beyond just keeping their doors open—they will help them grow and thrive. ClubGRANTS funding is designed to give community organisations a boost when and where it’s needed most.
Community groups such as Jindelara Disability Services, Lifeline South Coast, Culburra Volunteer Rural Fire Brigade, Shoalhaven Neighbourhood Services, Foster Care Angels Inc and Ulladulla Local Aboriginal Land Council are some of the many organisations that have benefited from the support provided by clubs through ClubGRANTS.
Applying for ClubGRANTS funding is quick and easy. All funding is processed locally and community groups can contact their local clubs easily and at any time for information and advice. ClubGRANTS is also flexible, allowing clubs to provide support quickly, efficiently, and often as soon as a need emerges.
