A FREE online service has been launched to help individuals, businesses and community organisations to easily identify and access government funding, as well as philanthropic grant programs.
Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Funding Finder website includes a page dedicated to gathering the many COVID-19 funding opportunities into one place. This one-stop-shop approach aims to save time and effort on research.
Users can create favourites lists, receive direct email alerts from their areas of interest and keep abreast of all funding opportunities and deadlines.
The website also offers advice and tips for finding and applying for grants to maximise the chances of success. It allows users to filter their search to a specific location, industry or type of project.
“Now more than ever it’s important that individuals, businesses and organisations know what financial support is available to them and how to apply for it,” the mayor Cr Sam Hearn said.
“The Funding Finder is a great support tool. It will go a long way to taking time and stress out of searching for community and business funding.
“I encourage anyone in our community looking for financial support for a project or business to use this tool to help them in their search.”
He said the comprehensive, free service was ideal for local businesses, not-for-profits, community groups, sporting organisations and individuals. Visit: mornpen.vic.gov.au/fundingfinder
