Frankston City Council has dedicated close to $1 million to this year’s business and community grants pool which is now open for applications.
Frankston City Mayor, Sandra Mayer, said grants were available to help businesses, individuals and community groups boost their important contributions to the City.
“Whether you’re an artist, student, café owner or work with a local sporting club or charity, we appreciate the important work you do for the community and want to help you reach your full potential in Frankston City,” Cr Mayer said.
The significant expansion of this year’s program is, in large part, a result of the $6.434 million Relief and Recovery Package Council created to help the City recover from the impacts of COVID-19.
The Relief and Recovery Package and Council’s additional supports will now be encompassed by the For the love of Frankston banner.
The Mayor said this would ensure the community could easily identify Council’s recovery programs and access the help or advice they needed.
“Since March we have been working hard to tailor and deliver the support, information and advice our community requires for its recovery.
“We are doing it all for the love of Frankston – our residents, our businesses and our community groups. We want everyone to have the resources they need to move past this challenging time.
“That’s why I’m proud to share this great news about our expanded grants pool. There really is something for everyone in this year’s program so if you can put one of our grants to good use please jump online and apply now.”
The Mayor added that although not all grants directly related to COVID-19, they would play an important role in building strength, resilience and the economy.
