Council announces recipients of Community Assistance Program grants

Published on 13 May 2019


Rockhampton Regional Council has supported another 19 community projects to the tune of $32,000 thanks to the latest round of the Community Assistance Program.

Chair of Council’s Communities Committee, Councillor Rose Swadling, said that Council was delighted with the number of strong applications received and the range of projects that will soon be rolled out.

“The Community Assistance Program is all about supporting local not-for-profit organisations achieve their goals and carry out projects and events that benefit the entire community,” Cr Swadling said.

“In this third and final round of the 2018-19, we have been able to provide funding assistance to 19 local groups. Over the coming months they will carry out a wide range of projects.

“We are supporting events like the Taste of the World festival, Romp in the Park, and the Mount Morgan Rodeo. We are also helping with projects like the refurbishment of the Capricorn Silver Band Hall and AquaJets Swim School.

“The applications for our next round of funding will be opening soon, so please do get in touch to find out more and see if we can help make your idea a reality.”

The annual program supported 82 local organisations with 94 projects in 2018-19, seeing more than $433,000 of funding support provided to the Region.

Applications for the first round of the 2019-20 Community Assistance Program will open later this month.
