We understand that 2020 has posed many challenges and that there are circumstances where some community groups may need some financial assistance to continue servicing their community.
Council is committed to helping our region recover from COVID-19 by working alongside communities and by supporting and building the capacity of communities and organisations.
The COVID-19 Operational Support Grant is a non-recurrent funding program open to Wellington Shire Council not-for-profit community groups and organisations to assist in meeting operational costs where usual activities have been impacted.
Wellington Shire Council has allocated $50,000 to the Community Operational Support Grant Program. Applicants may apply for up to $1,000.
Applications for the COVID-19 Operational Support Grant are open now using the SmartyGrants application form below.
The Guidelines and Assessment Criteria for the COVID-19 Operational Support Grant can be found here.
