Local groups encouraged to apply for thousands in community grants
18 February 2020
Kingston’s 2020-2021 grants program is now open with thousands of dollars on offer to support local community groups, artists and children’s organisations build a stronger, healthier and socially connected Kingston.
Community members have until midnight on Tuesday 31 March, to apply for one of three grant programs.
Kingston Mayor Georgina Oxley said the grants provide an equitable way for the community to seek funding assistance from Council.
“The Community Grants program is all about supporting our local not-for-profit groups and organisations to enable them to continue to provide opportunities and activities for all residents in Kingston, Cr Oxley said.
“There are so many fantastic community groups doing great work across Kingston, Council is proud to be able to support their efforts.
“There are three main grants programs that community groups can apply for, providing applicants with various opportunities to seek funding assistance for programs that meet community needs.”
In 2019 Kingston Council awarded almost $1.5 million dollars in grants to local community groups.
Community Grant Programs:
- Annual Grants
- Arts Grants
- Children’s Week Grants
