Applications have opened for Casey Cardinia Foundation’s annual Community Grants Program.

Grants of up to $10,000 will be considered in this round of grants, however the average grant amount is $5000.

The Community Grants Program aims to support projects for all types of people and groups including the elderly, disadvantaged, disability, youth, arts, environmental and men’s health and crisis within the Casey and Cardinia regions.

Casey Cardinia Foundation provides grants for projects that support the growing needs of its communities, now and into the future.

Community organisations operating as not-for-profit will be eligible to apply for a grant.

To apply, a grant application form must be completed and submitted to before 5pm on 15 July.

Applicants who are shortlisted will be notified and may be required to provide additional documentation such as annual reports, financial statements, letters of support, etc.

Successful applicants will then be notified in September and invited to the Casey Cardinia Foundation’s annual charity dinner to be held on Friday 16 October at the Cardinia Cultural Centre from 6.30pm.
