Community groups seeking funding for minor projects or purchases are invited to apply to the opening round of Moyne Shire’s Community Assistance Fund (CAF) for 2024-25.

The well-subscribed annual program aims to build stronger communities and deliver benefits to residents and visitors through grants to community-led projects and facility improvements.

Mayor, Cr Ian Smith said CAF is one of the most popular Council programs and he encourages all eligible community groups to consider applying.

“This fund helps us support a wide range of groups across the shire with their important work,” Cr Smith said.

“Grants of up to $3,000 are available for smaller community-based projects or activities, and up to $15,000 for larger purchases or capital works.”

“There are four different funding streams available, so it’s important that people head online to read the eligibility criteria.”

“One of the mandatory requirements is applicants must first speak with a Council Program Officer before lodging their application,” he said.

Applications open at 9:00am on Monday July 8, and close on Friday August 2 at 5:00pm.
