Not-for-profit organisations and community-based groups near the Duralie Coal Mine can apply for funding from 12 February to 24 March 2024.

Community groups can apply for between $5,000 and $10,000 for projects that provide social, cultural, economic or environmental benefits to the community in the Stroud region where the Duralie Coal Mine operates.

“The Duralie Community Fund is a great opportunity to enhance facilities and deliver projects that will benefit the community in the Stroud area,” said Alex Mills, MidCoast Council’s Manager Libraries, Community and Cultural Services.

“It is anticipated this will be the final Duralie Community Fund round” said Mr Mills, “with successful past projects including funding to assist upgrades to the showground, provide accessible unisex toilets and Allen Park and the construction of Stroud’s new skatepark.”

“In previous years, funding of up to $50,000 was available, but this has been reduced to $10,000 to reach as many community groups and not-for-profit organisations as possible before the fund is exhausted,” said Mr Mills.

Successful applications will address an identified community priority, demonstrate broad community reach, be sustainable and be well-defined with a clear budget.
