Grants boost for Capel community

South Western TimesSouth Western Times

The Capel community is set to receive a $20,000 financial boost through Lotterywest COVID-19 Relief Funding.

The Capel Shire Council surveyed 325 local businesses, clubs, groups and individuals during the COVID-19 shutdown from March to May and found more than half of the respondents reported they faced financial difficulty.

Using the survey findings, the council will provide targeted community grants by giving 100 respondents $200 vouchers to spend at local businesses.

The shire will also provide local support through the Minor Community Grants and Events sponsorship schemes, which are now open for application.
