Healthy communities, recovery and Seniors Week grants available

Eurobodalla Council is offering community groups up to $2,000 funding to run activities that improve health and support recovery in the community.

The Council’s Healthy Communities and Recovery Grants are available to eligible not-for-profits, with special consideration given to projects that assist the community’s disaster recovery.

Council’s community development coordinator Zoe Morgan said it was a great opportunity for organisations to grab some cash to help our community reconnect and rebuild post bushfires and COVID.

“Activity options are broad – it could be training for volunteers, a craft day get-together, outdoor cricket or an excursion to one of our local attractions,” she said.

“Applying is easy – all you need to do is think up a great idea and apply for funds to make it a reality.”

Meanwhile, grants of up to $500 are also available for not-for-profits to put toward the cost of hosting an event or activity for next year's Seniors Festival.

Applications for both grant programs are now open and close Wednesday 4 October 2020.
