LOCAL groups committed to improving Clarence’s open spaces will have the opportunity to strengthen their work in the community with applications now open for Clarence City Council’s 2021-22 Land and Coastcare Grant Program.

Held annually, the grant program is open to land care, coast care, scout, guide, service clubs and school groups in the City of Clarence and provides financial assistance of up to $5,000 to projects that demonstrate community benefit.

Clarence City Council Mayor Alderman Doug Chipman said council was happy to offer the Land and Coastcare Grant Program for 2021-22.

“Land and coast care groups do such amazing work in our community, working together to maintain and improve our natural environment and open spaces,” he said.

“We are so pleased to be able to provide financial support through our grants program and we encourage any groups with worthwhile on-the-ground projects to submit an application now.”

Grants are now available to support environmental projects predominantly on council-managed land and with broader community benefit.

Applications close 5pm on Monday 20 September.
