Forty-one organisations registered for the Deniliquin Community Group’s funding scheme last Tuesday night.
The information night was held at the Deniliquin Rams function room and saw about 60 people attend.
DCG chairman Tony Kew discussed the funding scheme and guest speakers included Bendigo Bank Community Strengthening Victoria and Tasmania’s Keith MacQueen and Deniliquin Sports Stadium manager John Arthur.
Bendigo Bank provides funds through its community banking scheme to the DCG, which then decides who will receive the grants through an application process.
‘‘The more people who tag Deniliquin Community Group at Bendigo Bank the more funds we will have to distribute,’’ Mr Kew said.
‘‘It’s at no cost to the people but the community group receives a commission.’’
Now in its sixth round of grants, the group has injected $330,000 into the community.
Only organisations who attended Tuesday night will be eligible for this year’s funding.
The grants will be presented on June 10 at the Deniliquin RSL Club and applications close April 29.
