Council has approved the recommendation to allocate $287,137.56 for the Community Events and Place Activation Grant Program with 29 successful applications.

The Community Events and Place Activation Grant Program is designed to support the community to deliver community events and activities that activate spaces and places to complement activity around town centres, foreshores, lakes and open spaces for families, community and visitors.

The Community Events and Place Activation Grant Program for 2021-22 has a total budget of $300,000 and is funded through existing and approved Operational Plan budgets.

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said COVID impacted everyone's ability to host community events and this funding is perfectly timed as we move out of restrictions and re-connect as a community.

"I'm pleased this funding will support these organisations to deliver a range of exciting, meaningful and fun events and programs for the local community and to activate our region"
