Clarence Valley clubs can apply for financial support

CLARENCE Valley community groups with projects that focus on improving the living standards of low-income and disadvantaged people are invited to apply for financial support.

Projects that focus on addressing homelessness or youth issues will be given priority.

The funding is available under the ClubGRANTS program.

Clarence Valley Mayor Richie Williamson said the assessment process would be a competitive one with limited funds available.

Yamba Bowling and Recreation Club chief executive officer Phil Broughton said $50,000 was spent last year.

"It is a great opportunity to financially assist those organisations working in the community who desperately need funding to deliver critical products and services but find it difficult to secure funding elsewhere," he said.

"Registered clubs are community-based, non-profit organisations. Providing financial support to the community we live in is a critical role we play, and we take this role very seriously."
