The company has supported communities across Ararat, Pyrenees and Northern Grampians municipalities since 2017.

Ararat Rural City Council chief executive Tim Harrison said the program, administered by the council, provided eligible groups with financial assistance, helping them run innovative and sustainable projects to benefit the wider community.

“Grants of up to $5000 for smaller projects or $10,000 with matching funding for larger projects are available through the program,” he said. 

Applications close at 5pm on August 9. Application forms are available online at
