City of Greater Geelong announces an increase to the COVID-19 Recovery Grants
Posted 23 September 2020
Last Monday 21 September, City of Greater Geelong approved additional funding for the COVID-19 Arts, Culture and Heritage Recovery Grants.
The additional amount of $155K requested by the Arts and Culture Dept on behalf of the art community, adding to the initial pool of $150K, bringing the total of this quick response grants program to $305K.
The increased amount will fund 77% of the 87 applications received, a much-needed outcome for our creative and cultural industries.
The Arts and Culture Department feel very supported by the Councillors who have genuinely felt the impact on the arts sector in responding with this support.
