Community organisations across Mildura are being urged to apply for support with the third round of the Community Shade Grants Program.
The program looks to provide funding to build new shade structures, repair or replace existing shade structures, create natural shade, purchase a portable shade, or a combination of options.
Funding under the scheme is available in three bands with Band 1 of up to $5000, Band 2 of up to $5000 to $20,000, and Band 3 with up to $20,000 to $50,000.
Locals can apply in two stages; first with expressions of interest, and then with a full application.
Funds of up to $700 are available for sunscreen and hats for groups who apply.
Applications close on the 30th of November.
Member for Mildura Peter Crisp says the grants are for our comfort as well as health and safety.
