Natimuk Special Community Grants Round


Local groups have benefited from $22,314 in funding from the Natimuk Special Community Grants program.

Council last year sold a small portion of the old Natimuk tennis courts site, and agreed to allocate the net proceeds to the Natimuk community.

Applications for the Special Grants Round were open during July and August and 14 applications were received, with 12 successful.

Applications for Council’s annual municipality-wide Community Development Grants will open in February 2022.
