Katherine Town Council's annual community grants program opened today, allowing community groups to apply for up to $5000 to support initiatives and events that benefit the Katherine local government region.

The program offers minor grants of up to $2000 and major grants up to $5000 for projects and events that align with Council's five-year strategic plan.

Grant applicants must also contribute in kind or financial support for their projects and demonstrate how their initiative benefits all or at least part of the Katherine community.

Last year, Katherine Town Council awarded five major grants to help fund Kalano's NIADOC Family Fun Day, the Katherine Regional Arts' Junk Festival 2023, Wurli Wurlinjang Aboriginal Corporation's Wurli Community Breakfast, the purchase of outdoor broadcasting equipment for Katherine FM and Red Cross's Joys of Many Colours Fashion & Cultural Show 2023

Four minor grants were awarded to support the National Trust Katherine Branch's Christmas Lights Display at O'Keeffe House and the 1926 Railway Station, the Heritage Christian Church's Youth Hub Drop-in Centre, the development and promotion of Rainbow Katherine NT's newly created Rainbow Katherine NT Inc. and Kalano's Mural for Rockhole Community Bus Shelter.

Applications for the 2023/24 program are open until the 30th August 2023 and grants will be awarded in September 2023.
