Maleny groups share in $1.13 million

Community groups across the Sunshine Coast are celebrating a funding boost of more than $1.13 million thanks to Sunshine Coast Council’s Community Partnership Funding Program.
Council recently endorsed funding for 127 community organisations for various festivals, musical performances, men’s sheds, museums, sport and recreational club maintenance, often with a focus on more sustainable operating practices. Groups received funds for operational expenses for up to three years.
Council also allocated a further $842,000 for projects in their second year of funding.
Community Policy and Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said by partnering with the community through the grants program, council is working toward its vision for the Sunshine Coast to be Australia’s most sustainable region.
“Council acknowledges that community groups and volunteers make important and positive contributions to our communities,” Cr McKay said.
“Council’s Community Partnership Funding Program aims to work together with community groups to develop strong relationships and help build their capacity with regard to good governance and sustainable practices.
“Financial assistance is a great help to community groups over the short term, however partnering with council to develop skills and opportunities to help ensure long term success of these community groups is the biggest benefit.”
Council’s ongoing interaction with successful applicants includes development of partnership agreements and regular reporting requirements.
The next round of council’s Community Partnership Funding Program will open on 1 May 2012, further details are available on council’s website at www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au or from customer contact centres.
