Learn about successful grant writing

Learn the secrets to successful grant writing during an online Community Grants Application Training Workshop on Monday, January 18 at 6.30pm.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne is encouraging people, especially those with projects that have a particular focus on the health and wellbeing of Hills Shire residents, to attend.
“Grant writing can be a difficult and sometimes confusing process,” Mayor Byrne said.
“Some may have limited experience in applying for grants whilst others might want to understand more about applying for grants specifically with The Hills Shire Council.
“This workshop will help residents, as well as community groups to understand the process of grant writing, the dos and don’ts and tips and examples, which will help them increase their chances of success,” Mayor Byrne added.
Adding to this, The Hills Shire Council’s Community Grants Program is now open for applications.
The annual program is focused on providing funding between $1,000 and $15,000 to four main priority areas, including:
- Events that connect the community;
- Domestic violence prevention and recovery;
- Mental health and suicide prevention; and
- Community participation opportunities.
Applications close at 4pm on Friday 12 February 2021 and must be submitted through Council’s grants management system.
