Southern Downs Regional Council is reminding community organisations in the region that there is still time to get applications in for the 2016-17 Community Support Program (CSP) which closes on 21 April.
The 2016-17 CSP opened for applications from eligible organisations on 27 March.
The CSP is available to provide funding for the provision of operational services that respond to specific or targeted needs in the community or, for the operation of community halls which are primarily for community use.
Applications must be submitted online via SmartyGrants, and can be made for funding up to a maximum of $5000.
Southern Downs mayor Tracy Dobie said in 2015/16 more than 20 applicants shared in $30,000 worth of Community Support Program funding made available by the council.
“We are excited to be able to offer $30,000 in funding again this financial year to be shared across our dedicated Southern Downs community organisations, and I encourage those seeking assistance for their important services to get on-board and complete an application,” she said.
“Through its grant and funding programs, the council recognises the valuable projects and initiatives that local community groups and clubs run in our region that need a helping hand.”
Full details about the CSP’s eligibility and assessment criteria, and how to apply is outlined in the program guidelines and frequently asked questions.
Before applying for funding, applicants should read these documents, which are available on the council’s website.
The 2016/17 Community Support Program round will close at 5pm on Friday 21 April.
