McDonalds ACT and Cricket ACT have announced that ten families will be the first beneficiaries from the McDonalds ACT Community Grants program. 

McDonalds ACT have been great supporters of local cricket in our region since the 2016-17 season, becoming the naming rights partner of the McDonalds Premier Cricket competition. McDonalds ACT have now increased their support by providing funds to support a McDonalds ACT and Cricket ACT Community Grants program. 

The McDonald's ACT Community Grants program was launched early this year to assist individuals and families who are making distinct contributions to cricket in the ACT and participating in numerous programs. In year one there were ten $500 grants available for individuals and/or families with 22 applications received.
