Time is running out to apply for money through the ClubGRANTS program, with just a handful of days left.
If you have a great community project that needs funding then read on!
Applications for ClubGRANTS Category 1 funding are open now but close on Monday, 1 May.
Eligible organisations are invited to apply for grants of up to $10,000 for projects that improve community wellbeing and address social issues in the Bega Valley Shire.
