Round two of community impact grants open


Payments of up to 20-thousand are up for grabs as part of council’s second round of community impact grants.

The payments support community groups and organisations run projects, programs and events.

Ballarat Councillor Tracey Hargreaves says eligibility requirements are listed on the council website.

"People just need to apply and they service lots of different industries from hospitality to trade, fitness and accommodation," she said. 

City of Ballarat Mayor Councillor Daniel Moloney said the Community Impact Grants provided valuable support to community organisations in need, particularly during the post-pandemic period. 

“We want to support community groups to get back up and running as soon as possible and these grants can help buy or replace equipment or provide organisational aid, Cr Moloney said. 

“I would urge any community group looking for that bit of extra support to apply.”
