Thirty community groups and not-for-profit organisations will share in just over $100,000 through the 2022-2023 Yorke Peninsula Council Community Grants scheme.
Council is committed to developing the region by providing funding opportunities through the annual scheme.
The scheme provides financial grants for projects that provide a benefit to the wider community of the Yorke Peninsula Council region.
This year’s projects range from purchasing disability and wheelchair friendly seating to establishing a nine-hole par three golf course at Port Victoria.
“Council is excited by the range and calibre of project submitted for the 2022-23 Community Grants Scheme,” Mayor Darren Braund said.
“At the time closing, Council had 40 applications requesting total funding of $138,299.28 for projects to the value of $350,519.
“While Council could not approve all applications we thank everyone who applied and encourage those who missed out to try again next year.”
Mr Braund said Council is focused on working together with the community to shape a sustainable future for current and future generations.
“It is important for Council to engage and support the community and the Community Grants Scheme is just one way to do this,” Mr Braund said.
“The projects put forward by the community will improve the quality of life for those living on and those visiting Yorke Peninsula.”
