FULL LIST: Community groups receive council funding

MORE than $35,000 of grant money has been approved by Lockyer Valley Regional Council.

Eleven applications were approved by the council under its Community Grants Program, with all approved projects receiving the full amount requested.

Councillors Jason Cook, Chriss Wilson and Tanya Milligan declared conflicts for a number of proposed grants, and were excused from the vote.

The remaining councillors voted unanimously to approve the 11 applications recommended for approval.

Three applications were not recommended for approval to council due to not meeting the criteria of the grants program, because the organisation had “sufficient funds of its own”.
