Three South Burnett associations have received grants under a special supplementary round of the Federal Government’s Volunteer Grants scheme.
- Kilkivan Performance Horse Association – $5000
- Nanango RSL Sub-Branch – $3200
- Tansey Show Society – $5000
The grants were announced this week by Volunteering Queensland, on behalf of the Department of Social Services.
The scheme delivers grants of between $1000 to $5000 which can be used by organisations and community groups to support the efforts of their volunteers, and encourage and increase participation in volunteering.
The supplementary round also aimed to encourage post-COVID re-engagement activities for volunteers; and allow organisations to adopt COVIDsafe practices.
The 2020-21 Volunteer Grants round is expected to open mid-2021.
