Apply now for RADF and Community Project grants
Council is calling for applications for the next round of Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) and Community Project Grants.
Councillor Frank Pardon said not-for-profit organisations were eligible to apply for Community Project Grants to help them deliver community projects and programs.
“These include cultural, sporting and community events that bring residents together,” he said.
Allocated through a competitive assessment process twice a year, the grants can also help fund building works or repairs to local facilities.
“Grants allocated in the last round supported a wide range of projects, including the Kin Kin Community Group’s project to restore the Kin Kin Arboretum, Zero Emissions Noosa’s electric vehicle expo, plus sports field fencing, first aid equipment and solar panels,” Cr Pardon said.
Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grants, meanwhile, provide assistance for eligible arts and cultural projects.
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Noosa Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
“Since 2014 the RADF program has provided more than $170,000 to assist creative projects in Noosa,” local RADF Chair Councillor Jess Glasgow said.
“Projects have included art installations, workshops, plus projects that employ emerging or established artists or arts workers.”
Applicants have until noon, Friday, October 19, 2018, to lodge RADF and Community Project Grant applications.
