New grants to strengthen communities and aid COVID-19 recovery

Published on 28 March 2022


Mornington Peninsula Shire has strong relationships with many local community service providers, and our collaboration with these organisations and groups has achieved great outcomes for our community.
Today, we’re launching a grant tailor-made for community service providers. The Service Provider Grant can help your organisation facilitate special programs, events and campaigns addressing social issues that have been worsened by COVID-19.
We want to support projects where internal and external stakeholders work together to deliver COVID-19 recovery activities.
Our focus is on five priority areas, including:

  • Employment: programs, events and campaigns to build confidence and capacity in people who lost their jobs because of the pandemic.
  • Mental health: programs, events and campaigns to encourage people whose mental health suffered during the pandemic to seek help.
  • Family violence: programs, events and campaigns focusing on family violence prevention.
  • Social isolation and loneliness: programs, events and campaigns to foster social inclusion, health promotion, physical activity as well as access and equity.
  • Youth support: programs, activities and campaigns co-created and led by young people to promote engagement, positive wellbeing and community connection.

Applications for funding up to $25,000. Applications open 28 March and close 2 May 2022.
