Community groups in Sunbury and Bulla can now apply for Round 2 of the Sunbury & Bulla Neighbourhood fund to support local projects during construction of the West Gate Tunnel.
The $2 million Sunbury & Bulla Neighbourhood Fund was established acknowledging the temporary disruption to the local area while soil is being transported during the boring of the West Gate Tunnel.
Funding will be offered in two components – grants and partnerships – and allows not-for-profit groups access to money for projects that bring benefits Sunbury and Bulla and the people that live there.
Grants will provide up to $50,000 funding for community-led initiatives such as one-off projects and events. Partnerships will provide over $50,000 for improvements to local sporting and recreation facilities, the local environment, and other initiatives supporting the building of community and participation.
In the first round of the Fund 26 organisations shared in almost $800,000 worth of funding. Funded projects range from improvements to sporting and recreation facilities and community celebrations.
