South Gippsland Shire Council Chair Administrator, Julie Eisenbise said, “Congratulations to all of this year’s round one grant recipients and thank you to everyone who took the time to prepare and submit an application. Community Grants support a wide variety of local groups and associations in South Gippsland which is evidenced by the list of successful applicants. Funding in this round has been provided to football/netball clubs, Landcare, a Scout Group, a community garden and a historical society… to name just a few. It is pleasing to see how many groups have been supported and the range of projects that will soon be facilitated.”
