WORKING with the Victorian Government, the Yarriambiack Shire is offering a one off grant to community groups, recreation and sports clubs and neighbourhood houses.
Grants between $1000 to $5000 are available under the Community Activation and Social Isolation Initiative.
Yarriambiack Shire Council chief executive officer Jessie Holmes is encouraging all eligible groups to apply.
"This is a great opportunity for community groups to host events and activities that provide a social connection to isolated and vulnerable people in the community," she said.
IN OTHER NEWS:
"If your community group has been considering trying a new event, hosting a social evening to attract new members or a 'come & try' day for your sporting club, now is the time."
The grant is intended to help reconnect the community after the isolation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications close on May 30.
Applications can be submitted in person at the Yarriambiack Shire Council Office at 34 Lyle St, Warracknabeal or by email at email@example.com.
