Round 36 Announced

The Tasmanian Community Fund (TCF) has provided $3.01 million to 73 projects throughout Tasmania in its latest grant round.

Funding included upgrades to a popular BMX track, a new community kitchen, instruments and music for young musicians and running chairs, which enable disabled children to participate in sporting events.

TCF chairwoman Sally Darke said the grants would make a positive difference in the lives of many individuals and communities. “It is a great source of pride for the TCF Board to support so many worthwhile projects and programs in Tasmania through these grants,” she said.

A full list of funded projects can be found on the TCF website.

Hobart Visit

The Tasmanian Community Fund Board recently toured previously funded projects in the Hobart community including Windeward Bound, Bethlehem House, the Hobart Penitentiary Chapel and Tasmanian Maritime Radio. The Board also held a community forum.

The project tour and community forum provided an opportunity for community members to provide feedback to the Board on the outcomes, progress and issues relating to their projects and the issues that are facing Hobart and surrounding communities.

Receiving feedback and information from the community is vital in enabling the Tasmanian Community Fund Board to make decisions in the best interests and on behalf of the Tasmanian community.

The Board thanks all community members who attended the tour and the forum for their enthusiasm and commitment to their community and for their openness and willingness to share their knowledge with the Board.

The Board looks forward to their upcoming visit to Flinders Island.
