Terrigal Trotters and Gosford Pre-School have received a financial boost from Central Coast Council under the Community Support Grants Program.
The Trotters will be able to expand their equipment hire with their $5,000 grant while the pre-school’s $3,870 will go towards purchasing flagpoles and installation.
Council Administrator, Rik Hart, is encouraging other groups to apply for a Community Support Grants which provides up to $5,000 per project each month to financially assist with community projects.
“I strongly encourage any applicant interested in seeking in-kind or financial assistance to meet with Council staff at the grant writing workshops and information sessions available to help strengthen applications and give their project the best chance of success,” he said.
The Community Support Grants Program is open all year, providing funds to successful applicants on a monthly basis.
It provides assistance for community activities which require in-kind support through the provision of subsidised access to Council services, and financial assistance for community activities that require a smaller amount of support.
