Groups can now apply for up to $1000 in Bega Valley Shire Council's National Youth Week and Seniors Festival grants.

Youth Week grants are to contribute to youth-focused free events and activities for next year.

"Not-for-profit and community groups are encouraged to apply for up to $1000 to work with young people on the planning and delivery of events that celebrate the positive contribution young people bring to our communities," Bega Valley Shire Mayor Russell Fitzpatrick said.

The Seniors Festival grants will help not-for-profit community organisations and community groups run free events and activities as part of the 2021 festival, which will be celebrated between March 17 and 28 next year.

The grants are to help fund free creative, sporting, recreational or cultural Seniors Festival activities.

Applications for Seniors Festival grants close November 30 and Youth Week grants close December 7.
