Neighbourhood Grants now open
Ellendale developer, Cedar Woods, is looking to support community groups making a difference in the local area, with its third annual Neighbourhood Grants Program now open for submissions.
The program offers grants of $500, $1000 or $2000 to assist schools, community groups and not-for-profit organisations, which have been operating for more than 12 months.
Last year, 15 groups received funding, including Ferny Grove’s St. Andrews Catholic Primary School, which was awarded $2000 for a cutting-edge robotics program (pictured).
The grants are a great way to 'pay it forward' by helping to encourage and advance the work being done by local organisations. Groups located in the suburbs of Upper Kedron, Ferny Grove, The Gap, Arana Hills, Keperra, Ferny Hills, Everton Hills and Mitchelton are eligible to submit applications before 24 May 2019, by visiting www.ellendale.com.au/neighbourhood-grants
Judges from a committee of community representatives will review submissions and Cedar Woods will announce the successful applicants in June 2019.
We encourage all our local community groups to apply!
