More than $9000 in community grants for Division 4

Division 4 will receive more than $9000 in the first round of Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Community Grants Program for 2018/19.

 

Councillor for Division 4 said Y-Care would receive $5,000 to provide a 3X3 basketball competition, to provide fun and social recreation opportunities  for youth across the region.

“Council values healthy and active communities and this activity will certainly provide more opportunities for young people to get outdoors,” she says.

“I am also thrilled to announce more than $4900 to Jennis Ardern to assist with research regarding challenges facing young people today through comic-book style visual work.

“Council’s Community Grants Program is really about empowering community organisations and individuals to take pride and ownership in making the Moreton Bay Region an even better place to live and visit and this council grant will help them to achieve their goal with greater ease,” Cr Greer said.

Council’s Community Grants Program, which is offered in two rounds each year, is comprised of six grant categories that aim to develop and support organisations and individuals to positively contribute to the region’s community wellbeing, environmental sustainability, economic prosperity and cultural life.

 

Cr Greer congratulated all successful applicants and encouraged other community groups and individuals interested in applying for the next round of the Community Grants Program to visit council’s website for more information.

 

Applications for the second round of the 2018-19 program will open on February 1, 2019.
