Hume City Council approve over $500,000 in community grants

One hundred and sixty eight applications from Hume’s not-for-profit community
groups and organisations will soon share in over $500,000 funding, with Council
announcing on Monday, 24 October 2011, the recipients of its 2012 Community
Grants Program.

The grants, totalling $517,860 will offer support to local groups and organisations
to build stronger and more socially cohesive communities across the
municipality.

Hume Mayor Councillor Helen Patsikatheodorou said the grants are a response
to both the current and future needs of the community and will enable local
groups and organizations to develop and grow the range of services they provide
to their members.

“The variety and quality of applications we received shows the community sector
is growing within Hume and provides a diverse range of opportunities to our
people.

“We are delighted to continue to support the wonderful work local groups and
organizations are doing in our communities.”

Cr Patsikatheodorou said Council’s decision to change its Community Grants
structure has been well received by the public with a seven per cent increase in
funding applications from last year.

“The new Community Grants’ structure will enable the Council to work in
partnership with a wider range of non-for-profit groups and organizations in our
city.”

“We are excited by the sustained and positive change these groups are creating
across Hume City and look forward to supporting their efforts in the next twelve
months.”

2012 Community Grant’s have been allocated in four categories:

   Community Activity Grants – help small local groups and organizations
    meet their on-going needs. Available funds in this category have increased
    from up to $800, in 2011, to up to $2000, in 2012, to meet increasing costs.

   Innovation Grants – encourage and facilitate new ideas, particularly
    innovation which helps build on group’s financial sustainability. The maximum
