Thousands for Warwick groups with next round of grants

A NEW opportunity to grab a slice of the funding pie is open for community groups in the Southern Downs.

The third round of the Grants to Community funding program are set to open within a fortnight, with $60,000 available for qualifying groups.

Mayor Tracy Dobie said the next round of funding would help to further assist not-for-profit organisations.

"We have quarterly financial reviews, and with any spare money we look at how it can be returned to the community,” Cr Dobie said.

"The reason all councils are keen on grants is the community gets to do what the community wants.

"Any community group, as long as they are incorporated and meet the criteria associated, can apply.

"It can be for all sorts of things, whether they need some new equipment or upgrades to a building.

"Council is committed to assisting our not-for-profit community groups that work tirelessly to enrich and enhance our community.

"I encourage not-for-profit organisations to apply for the funding and, as always, don't leave it to the last minute.”

Grant applications are open from February 22 through to March 22 and are available for groups looking to undertake projects or activities beween April 30 and July 31.

Applications are capped at $10,000 per application per financial year.

To apply, head to: www.sdrc.qld.gov.au.
