Posted in Seeking by Ferne Edwards on March 4th, 2008

2008 Community Grants Open for not-for-profit community groups in Darebin. Find information from the press release below.

Funding is available for activities and programs that focus on social justice, health, sport and recreation, environment, education and arts and culture. Groups can also apply for assistance with the costs of hiring Council venues.
