Not-for-profit community groups and organisations across the Bundaberg Region are invited to attend Council Community Grant workshops.

Not-for-profit community groups and organisations across the Bundaberg Region are invited to attend Council Community Grant workshops to learn more about eligibility and application requirements.

The free workshops, being held in Childers, Gin Gin and Bundaberg throughout May, will provide information on a range of topics including:

• Navigating the SmartyGrants portal
• Eligibility: is your organisation eligible? How can you become eligible?
• Levels of funding available under Council’s Community Grants program
• What types of projects or events can I apply for?
• Understanding the essentials of selection criteria
• What other supports can I receive?
• How long before I receive the funding?
• How to successfully acquit a grant

Council’s Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said these workshops would be a great chance for community organisations to understand Council grants and how to apply.

“The aim of Council’s Community Grant Program is to provide assistance to local community groups and organisations who make positive contributions to the quality of life in the Bundaberg Region,” Cr McPhee said.

“It is important that local organisations have the opportunity to understand applying for these grants, so I encourage everyone to register and attend their local session.”

Bookings for the sessions are essential for catering and handout packs.

  1. Spoke to Nikki at BRC this afternoon, who put me into the Bundaberg session and advised that Kate or Steven would call me Monday.
    I am on a few Committees, however I will represent Bargara Progress Association of which I am Treasurer, for this event.
    Looking forward to it!
