Today, representatives from local organisations and community groups attended a special presentation at Revesby Workers Club.
Mayor Khal Asfour said ClubGRANTS were a terrific example of how councils can work with local clubs to assist the community.
"For many years now, Council has worked with the City’s licensed clubs, to provide essential funding for projects and programs benefitting the local community," Mayor Asfour said.
"This year, 235 applications were received, requesting more than $4 million, with 136 projects chosen to share $1,468,565."

"I am looking forward to seeing the results of the successful projects," Mayor Asfour said.
"Very soon, local community groups and organisations will have another opportunity to gain financial support for their projects, through Council’s Community Grants program."
