Gulaptis encouraging Clarence Valley organisations to apply for grants

CLARENCE Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis, who is of Macedonian descent, is encouraging Clarence and Richmond Valley councils and local not-for-profit community organisations to apply for the NSW Government's Celebration Grants program, which provides funding of up to $5000.

"I want families from different cultures to feel as welcome in our local area as mine was," Mr Gulaptis said.

"That is why I urge local community organisations and councils to apply for a Celebration Grant to support our thriving multicultural calendar."

Applications open three times a year and projects are assessed on how many people are likely to attend, whether the project will benefit intercultural understanding and be cost effective.

Applications close September 29, 2017.
