FRIDAY is the last opportunity for community groups to apply for the Southern Downs Regional Council's 2016-17 Community Support Program.

The CSP is available to provide funding for the provision of operational services that respond to specific or targeted needs in the community or, for the operation of community halls which are primarily for community use.

Applications must be submitted online via SmartyGrantsfor a maximum of $5,000.

Southern Downs Mayor Tracy Dobie said in 2015/16 more than 20 applicants shared in $30,000 worth of Community Support Program funding made available by Council.

"We are excited to be able to offer $30,000 in funding again this financial year to be shared across our dedicated Southern Downs community organisations, and I encourage those seeking assistance for their important services to get on-board and complete an application,” she said.

"Through its grant and funding programs, Council recognises the valuable projects and initiatives that local community groups and clubs run in our region that need a helping hand.

Full details about the CSP's eligibility and assessment criteria, and how to apply is outlined in the Program Guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday.
