Community groups looking for funding help can apply now for the latest round of Wellington Shire Council's Community Assistance Grants.
The grants will be awarded to non-profit groups for events, projects and facilities that will benefit the Wellington Shire community.
Applications are open to community groups for funding of $2,001 to $5,000 in the following categories:
Wellington Shire Council Mayor Ian Bye urged groups in their applications to consider outlining how the funding would benefit the Wellington community.
"In our last funding round, Council allocated more than $136,000 in funding to 28 different projects, events and facilities across Wellington Shire which needed our support," Cr Bye said.
"With many projects and events hopefully getting back on track after a couple of years of interruptions due to Covid-19, I encourage groups to seek funding through the Community Assistance Grants program."
The Community Assistance Grant program has two rounds in 2022.
The first round of funding will open from 14 January to 1 March and the second round will be from 13 June 2022 to 2 August.
