Ideas for community-based projects in the Kiama area can become a reality under a new grant scheme made available to the municipality.
Southern Phone Company hopes to fund a number of community-based projects with a total of $25,000 of grant funding on offer to provide a physical asset for, or service to, the local community within the Kiama LGA.
“Previously, community grants have enabled great projects such as a refugee exchange program, music albums, theatre productions, arts festivals, environmental work, cultural art and much more’, said Mayor Brian Petschler. “I encourage all of our community groups to work with Council to take advantage of this valuable opportunity and create projects that enrich our community and often leave a legacy for future generations”, he said.
Kiama Council is responsible for collating and submitting the grant applications.
“I congratulate the Southern Phone Company on this initiative to assist local projects”, said Mayor Brian Petschler. “Kiama Council is a foundation shareholder in this successful which business based on local government”, he said.
