MRC community grant program now open

Applications for Round 1 of Murray River Council’s 2021/22 Community Grants Program are now open.

The competitive grant round offers individual grants of up to $3,000.

Murray River Council Mayor, Cr Chris Bilkey is encouraging local community groups or not-for-profit organisations to apply. 

“The community grants program is in place to support our local groups and committees to further their ideas or projects.” 

“Whether it’s an event people are looking to get off the ground or a new piece of equipment for a facility; if it is of benefit to our local area I would encourage community groups to apply,” he said.

These community grants are in addition to funds currently being provided to recurring, annual events and projects.

Further information as well as access to the online application form can be found on Council’s website at

Applications will be assessed against a range of criteria, including demonstrated community need, sustainability, community benefit, inclusiveness and more.

Applications close Tuesday 28 September 2021.
