#294 Funding community initiative
We know that there are heaps of good ideas out there waiting to be realised, but that getting these projects off the ground can often be difficult - especially when your project needs a lot of money to get it started.
That's why councils offer community grant funding - programs which allow community members to apply for funding for their projects to help get them from start to finish.
Leichhardt is running seven grants programs this year, ranging from environmental and community grants to seniors grants and community garden funding. Funding ranges from as little as $250 (for Meet Street Greet programs) to $5,000 for other programs. See http://www.leichhardt.nsw.gov.au/Grants.html for more information.
We're looking forward to getting as many applications as possible, and will keep everyone updated about the wonderful projects that emerge through the program.
