Published on 24 May 2023


Murray River Council has awarded $24,519 in community grants to help support a wide range of community projects.

Community groups and not-for-profit organisations were able to apply for up to $3,000 for projects or events under round two of the 22/23 Community Grants Program, which closed on 5 April.

Murray River Council mayor, Cr Chris Bilkey said the grant program is a great way to support local projects and committees.

"Our Community Grants Program assists community organisations to deliver initiatives that benefit the broader community."

"It’s also a great avenue to further develop partnerships between community organisations and Council, so we’re once again pleased to back some exciting community projects."
