Community Grant Scheme

More than $21,000 will be invested back into the District Council of Grant community through the completion of another successful round of the popular Community Grant Scheme.

Administered twice a year across three grant categories; Sporting Clubs, Community Groups and Halls, the program has delivered funding towards $189,000 worth of local projects across eleven beneficiaries.

A key project being supported through this program is through the Mil Lel Memorial Park Hall Committee as they undertake a major renovation’s in the toilets and showers at the hall. This is an exciting project co-funded by the Federal Government through the Building Better Regions Community Funding Scheme and the Mil Lel Community.
