A free information session will be held on Monday 5 March 2018 for community groups and organisations wanting to learn more about the ClubGRANTS Scheme.

The program offers financial assistance to local community based organisations that would otherwise struggle to meet increasing demand.

In its 20th year, the ClubGRANTS scheme is designed to ensure larger registered NSW clubs in contribute to the provision of local front line community services.

Last year, registered Shellharbour City clubs donated over $230,000 to services and community based organisations as part of the Category 1 program.

Local Clubs participating this year are Shellharbour Workers Club, Oak Flats Bowling and Recreation Club, Albion Park RSL, Warilla Bowls and Recreation Club, Warilla Sports Club and Albion Park Bowling Club.

Shellharbour Mayor Marianne Saliba said the scheme saw the city’s larger clubs contributing to the provision of front line community services.

"Local community groups rely upon this money to provide ongoing services and support to our residents," Cr Saliba said.

"Council is proud to participate in this program and it is fantastic to see our local registered clubs putting so much back into the community," she said.

Applications for the 2018 round open Monday 5 March and close 27 April.

The community information session will be held at Shellharbour Civic Centre at 10am, Monday 5 March.
