Some $123,910 in Council grants will be shared among 13 community groups.

Rural City of Wangaratta Councillors this week voted to allocate the funding under Council’s Community Grants Program – Major Category.

Mayor Ken Clarke OAM congratulated the successful groups on the funding.

“This year, council received 51 major community grant applications, requesting a total of $451,685,” he said.

“The applications received were of an exceptionally high calibre and as always, the demand for funding through the Community Grants Program far exceeded the funding available through the budget allocation.
