THREE community groups have shared nearly $42,000 as recipients of the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s Community Major Grants Program.
Open to local not-for-profit groups, the new program provides financial assistance for projects which add community value.
The Serpentine Foothills Polocrosse Association was awarded $19,113 for the installation of 60 horse yards and nine watering points at John Lyster Reserve, while the Serpentine and Districts Golf Club was granted $12,700 towards the construction of a limestone entry statement.
Additionally, the Byford Progress Association received $10,000 towards a street sculpture as part of the Shire’s Street Art Master Plan.
Offered biannually, the program provides successful applicants with a grant of up to 50 per cent of the total project cost to a maximum of $50,000.
Applications are now open for the next round of funding and close on February 9.
