AN AMOUNT of $113,130 has been approved in round two of Campaspe Shire Council’s 2019/20 Community Grants program to support community services, programs and events.

Mayor Adrian Weston said the grant program offered financial support to not-for-profit community groups, clubs and associations to deliver a broad range of projects for the benefit of the wider Campaspe community.

“The grants program helps our much-valued volunteers within the community in bringing their ideas and initiatives to life,” Cr Weston said.

Grants were allocated under two categories: Community Support and Events.

In the Community Support category $64,140 was allocated to 24 groups. At a local level, Colbinabbin and District Historical Society received $4000 for information boards at the new silo art viewing area.

Campaspe Family Violence Action Group (Kyabram Community & Learning Centre) received $3,500 for its strategic review.

In the Event category $48,990 was allocated to 22 groups, to support community, minor and major events. At a local level, Goulburn Valley Auto Club received $2500 for the March 2020 Long Weekend Race Meet at Rushworth.
