Active Kyogle community grants 2012
Active Kyogle is making available a third round of funding for health projects in the Kyogle local government area.
What we’re looking for
This funding round is for small projects.
We’re looking to fund a diverse range of projects, covering areas such as healthy eating, exercise, and social inclusion.
The funding is available for a broad range of things including equipment, training, ‘come and try’ days, events, and more.
The main focus of this funding is projects that will generate good stories, and clear ways of telling these (in words, photos, video documentation, and so on).
Funding is available for up to $3000 per project.
The total funding pool is very limited, and we strongly encourage groups to apply for smaller amounts. We expect that very few projects would get funded at the higher end of this funding; we welcome applications that are for smaller amounts.
We also encourage groups who are able to source funding from their existing reserves, and other grants and fundraising efforts to supplement funding from Active Kyogle.
Application process: application form and presentation
The application process for the 2012 funding round is in two stages:
• A short application form, due 13 April 2012
• A presentation to be delivered on either 15 or 16 May 2012.

Active Kyogle Community Grants 2011 winners
Residents throughout the Kyogle local government area are set to see a diverse range of new health, fitness, and community initiatives thanks to funding from Active Kyogle’s Community Grants for 2011.
The six community organisations which received grants are:
- Kyogle Family Support Service, for an exercise program and gym equipment at the Mulli Mulli Community
- the Kyogle Pony Club, for a cross-country obstacle course and fitness track available also for individuals, groups, and clubs to use
- the Ettrick Hall Committee, for kitchen facilities to enhance community connectedness
- Tabulam Public School P&C, for a canteen upgrade to provide homestyle-cooked healthy meals for children and the broader community
- the Village Hall Players, for an inclusive theatre program for 7 to 16 year-olds.
- Woodenbong Progress Association, for ‘Wheels on Woodenbong’ – a bicycle and cultural event held on 26 & 27 November.
We’re excited by the strength of these successful applications, and look forward to seeing these projects get up and running.
We’re also encouraged to see the diversity of ideas: these projects include indoor and outdoor exercise; a revived community hall and canteen facilities, which will provide a key focal point and healthy meals for two local communities; and a shire-wide theatre project.
This really shows that the local community know that health is not only about fitness and exercise, but also diet and access to healthy food, as well as social inclusion and community involvement.
With 27 applications received from throughout the local government area, the competition for these grants was stiff. We would have loved to have been able to fund all of the proposed projects, and wish all the groups well in securing other funding.
Projects funded through the Active Kyogle Community Grants will be completed by the end of 2011, so we should be seeing some stories about the outcomes – and the benefit to the community – in the near future.
