The Council has awarded grants worth over $57,000 to 31 community groups for facilities, activities and events that will benefit the whole of Benalla Rural City.

The grants will assist groups as diverse as the Benalla Camera Club for a new projector, the Benalla Support Group for Children with Special Needs to help them with their annual Christmas and International Day for People with Disabilities, and the Devenish Public Hall Committee for new spouting around their kitchen.

The Benalla Flexible Learning Program was a recipient of one of a number of Youth Grants. Their grant will aid participation in a youth-driven street art tour and workshop in Melbourne, which will culminate in the development of a feature wall in Benalla. This is the first year the specially targeted Youth Grants have been offered.

“The Community Grants program is a popular program that supports groups who do wonderful things, providing services, social opportunities and community facilities, and contributing to the great liveability of Benalla Rural City,” said Mayor Cr Justin King.

“In many cases the sums involved are quite small but are the difference between a group being able to carry out their activity or not.

“The Council is delighted that we are now including Youth Grants in our program, and we look forward to seeing the results of that investment.”

The Council also offers a Community Sponsorship Program, which offers up to $500 to support eligible projects. Whereas the Community Grants program is decided once a year in May, applications for the Community Sponsorship Program can be submitted for consideration at any time.

Other recipients include:
 
 Benalla Men’s Shed for a defibrillator
 Benalla Saints Sports Club Past Players and Officials Association for a shelter for spectators and officials at the Showgrounds netball courts
 Broken River Environment Group for computer equipment
 Carers and Parents Support group for IT equipment
 Moira Bowls Club for replacement of a 30 year old heater
 Thoona Memorial Hall for building repairs
 VCAL students at Benalla P-12 College for stating the annual Get Out There Youth Awards
 Baddaginnie Fun Club for the provision of art and craft materials
 Youth Mental Health Awareness Committee for the staging of a Youth Mentla Health Awareness Week BBQ
