Funding available for Murray not-for-profits

NOT-for-profit organisations, associations and groups in the Shire of Murray requiring funding assistance to help service delivery, host an event or strengthen community capacity are being encouraged to submit applications as part of round 1 of the 2018-19 Community Assistance Partnership Fund.

The fund, a partnership between Alcoa and the Shire of Murray, invites applications three times a year with round 1 closing on Friday, August 31 for projects starting after November 1.

Shire president David Bolt said the not-for-profit organisation performed a fundamental role and it was vital funding was available to build and strengthen their capacity, in turn resulting in sustainable service delivery.

“Through the fund, not-for-profits can apply for up to $3000 each financial year,’’ he said.

“Projects must align with our 2025 Strategic Community Plan, fulfilling a community need while supporting the district’s strategic direction.’’

Community groups can submit funding applications for multiple projects providing the grant request total does not exceed the $3000 limit per group per year.

Applications for rounds 2 and 3 will be invited in November and March.
