The Adelaide Hills Council’s annual community grants program has identified 38 recipients who will benefit from a combined total of nearly $150,000.

Recipients included Gumeracha Football Club, Cudlee Creek Soldiers Memorial Ground, Cudlee Creek Tennis Club, Mount Torrens Bombers Tennis Club, Forest Range Recreation Ground and more.

The grants program, distributed under Community Development Grants and Community and Recreation Facility Grants, seeks to assist local not-for-profit community organisations in the Adelaide Hills Council district who provide facilities to, or want to generate great outcomes for, the local community.

Adelaide Hills Council Mayor, Jan-Claire Wisdom, acknowledges the importance of the annual grants program, this year in particular.

“We have seen such an outpouring of community connection in the face of bushfire recovery and then managing COVID,” said Mayor Wisdom.

“Being able to offer a financial boost to those people in the community who are leading initiatives of resilience and wellbeing is vitally important to us.”

“Sometimes having that help to purchase a seemingly trivial piece of equipment can make all the difference to the services a group can provide, and to the morale of our amazing community volunteers.”

The next round of Council’s Community Grants will launch in September 2021.
