Funding Opportunities – Shellharbour ClubGRANTS Program

Applications open 1 February

Shellharbour City Council is inviting local community groups and organisations to apply for the ClubGRANTS community funding scheme.

The scheme is a state-wide initiative between NSW Government and local clubs. It provides more than $100million in cash each year for projects and services that contribute to the wellbeing of their local communities.

There are three funding categories in 2024, with Council supporting the program by coordinating the Category 1 funding round for Shellharbour City.

This category is targeted at community welfare and social services, community development, health services and employment assistance activities, and other projects aimed at easing the cost of living for low income and disadvantaged residents.

Participating local clubs include Albion Park Bowling Club, Albion Park RSL, Oak Flats Bowling & Recreation Club, The Shellharbour Club, Warilla Bowls & Recreation Club, and Warilla Sports Club.

Shellharbour City Mayor Chris Homer said financial support from the city’s larger clubs helped provide services that were essential to community wellbeing.

“The ClubGRANTS financial assistance enables community groups to provide their ongoing services and support to our residents,” Mayor Homer said.

“With cost-of-living pressures impacting our community – especially vulnerable households – I am proud that Council is once again coordinating this program.

“It is also wonderful that our local clubs are once again giving back to the Shellharbour community,” he said.

Funding applications open 1 February and close at the end of May.

A free community information session about the Category 1 funding round will be held at the Shellharbour Civic Centre at 10am on Tuesday 6 February.

The session will provide details about the funding, an introduction to the application process and Shellharbour ClubGRANTS local priorities.
