The MJC received Federal funding results in December, with an offer of $60,000 support for our 2019 Program, which is a very positive development after four unsuccessful applications for A.C. funding for our 2018 Program. Previously Federally funded on an annual basis since 1983, the total of $60,000 is a return to the level that the MJC received for its 2011 Program (after which it received $50,000 annually between 2012 and 2017 after the ceiling was reduced to this amount in our category).
In addition to this Federal support, the MJC had already received a grant offer of $60,000 from Creative Victoria for our 2019 program via its Strategic Initiative program. Combined, these grants constitute the largest total amount that the MJC has received from the Federal and State Government together. In addition to this funding, the MJC also currently has an APRA/AMCOS grant of $3,000 for the 2018/2019 financial year.
