The SRL Community Projects Fund provides local community groups and councils the opportunity to deliver exciting new initiatives and projects along the SRL East corridor – delivering benefits to communities from Cheltenham to Box Hill well before trains start running.
Almost 80 community and sporting projects from Cheltenham, Clayton, Monash, Glen Waverley, Burwood and Box Hill are being delivered with support from the first round of the SRL Community Projects Fund.
Projects include new and updated community gardens, concerts and cultural festivals, sports equipment and updated club facilities, and local events.
In the first round of funding, community groups, not-for-profits, sports clubs and schools were among those who were able to apply for grants of between $10,000 and $80,000 for exciting local initiatives.
There will be future grant rounds while SRL East is built as part of the Community Projects Fund.
