Division 3 Councillor Paul Truscott said Council’s grant schemes offer a range of opportunities for groups to apply for funding for projects, activities and events that help ensure the Fraser Coast is a vibrant community.

“After 2020 was such a challenging year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is a pleasure to see so many community-driven activities being organised across the Fraser Coast and for Council to be able to support community groups through our grants programs,” Cr Truscott said.

“It’s all about building better communities together on the Fraser Coast.”
