Applications are now open for the Rural City of Murray Bridge Community Events, Grants and Donations $40,500 September funding round and the newly introduced $45,000 annual Environmental grant funding.  

Chief Executive Officer Michael Sedgman said grant funding programs offered residents and community groups the chance to help make their goals a reality.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for community groups to take advantage of a significant Council investment each year to support community driven innovative projects and events,” he said.

“Additional funding now available to support environmental initiatives will further benefit our community by minimising waste going to landfill, adaptation to climate change, water conservation and revegetation projects, for example.”

Applications are assessed on specific guidelines and Community Events, Grants and Donations individual grants are capped at $3,100 each - the applicant must match the amount requested in cash or in-kind support towards the project.

Applicants must be incorporated – if not, a letter must be obtained from a suitable incorporated body agreeing to receive finds on the applicant’s behalf.
