Muswellbrook Race Club opens applications for 2019 Community Support Program


Muswellbrook Race Club has opened applications for their 2019 Community Support Program. 

The program has been very successful over the past five years with many junior groups benefiting from Muswellbrook Junior Touch Football to Upper Hunter Community Services. 

More than $40,000 has been distributed into the local community since the program's inception with the successful groups from last year's program including Upper Hunter Community Services (Youth programs), Muswellbrook Junior Touch Football (Marquee), Early Links Inclusion Support Service (New equipment to assist learning with disabled children) and Upper Hunter Eisteddfod (event support).

"Our younger citizens in the Muswellbrook Shire are an integral part of the growth of our community and as such, helping to promote lifestyles that include the ongoing learning and development of the younger demographic is a focus that Muswellbrook Race Club embraces," said Muswellbrook Race Club General Manager Duane Dowell. 

“The Community Support Program will be a continued focus for our club going forward and after the great response since the program was launched in 2015, I’m delighted that we are able to again offer these grants in 2019 and beyond.”

"The money goes to junior groups that have participants under 16 years old, are a not-for-profit group, they are the two main features and also within the Muswellbrook Shire."

There are four $2000 grants up for grabs that the application process is flexible on.

Eligible applicants can download the application form on the Muswellbrook Race Club website, to be submitted by Friday 5th July 2019.

The only way to find out is to fill out the form so the committee can consider them and make a decision.
