Reinvigorating our City with community grants
Published on 22 November 2023
The recipients of Council’s 2023 Community Grants program have been announced, with 24 community groups sharing in a grant pool of $255,000.
Special projects and one-off events have been selected by an Independent Review Panel from 61 applications, and were endorsed by Council this week.
In congratulating recipients, City of Maribyrnong Mayor, Cr Cuc Lam, noted the grants program is a fantastic opportunity to reinvigorate our City at a grass roots level.
“From hands-on Basic Home Maintenance courses, to Friends of Maribyrnong Social Café and VietSpeak’s Languages in Community Day, there are a number of projects and events that not only highlight the vibrant and diverse culture of our City; but celebrate our community and encourage participation.”
“I am looking forward to seeing the successful applicants bring their ideas to life,” she added.
A number of themes were evident across all applications received this year including:
- building connections in the community
- supporting mental health and wellbeing
- opportunity for play for young people and families.
