Grants for shade now available

Nationals Member for Mildura, Peter Crisp is encouraging sports clubs, not-for-profit organisations, and community groups across the Mildura electorate to take advantage of the third and final round of the Community Shade Grants Program which is now open.

Mr Crisp said funding was available in three bands – Band 1 up to $5,000, Band 2 $5,000 to $20,000, and Band 3 $20,000 - $50,000 - with applicants only able to apply for one grant.

“The program provides funding to build new shade structures, repair or replace existing shade structures, create natural shade by planting trees, purchase a portable shade, or a combination of options,” Mr Crisp said.

“Applicants for new, repair or replacement, natural and portable shade may also apply for up to an additional $700 for sunscreen and hats.

“There are a number of community organisations in the Mildura electorate that could put additional shade structures to good use.”

The application process involves two stages:

1. Expression of Interest
2. Full application (shortlisted applicants only)
