Recreation Development Grant

Council’s Recreation Grants Scheme provides recreation groups with the opportunity and financial assistance to undertake a broad range of small to medium projects, with funding available through two different programs.

The Recreation Development Grant is aimed at projects that encourage new leisure initiatives with the potential to expand the range and quality of recreation opportunities or increase participation in a particular activity.

Groups proposing projects at Council owned or managed facilities must apply for and receive approved Land Managers Consent prior to submitting a grant application. Groups requiring Land Managers Consent are encouraged to contact Council before the grant opening date as the approval process may take up to 6 weeks from receipt of a completed application form.

How much is available?

Up to $3,000. Funding is provided on a $2 for $1 funding ratio. For every $2 contributed by Mildura Rural City Council to a project, successful applicants must contribute a minimum of $1.

When do grant applications open and close?

Applications open Monday 5 July 2021 and close 4pm on Monday 16 August 2021.
