Quick Response Grants support the delivery of outcomes that have positive impacts on the wider Wellington community. Eligible projects submitted under this program will be assessed within two weeks.
We understand that there are circumstances where the community may need some financial assistance to complete a project, run an event or undertake some maintenance on their facility. This grant aims to build community capacity by encouraging participation and inclusion, growing community partnerships, providing learning opportunities, supporting social connectedness, and activating our community spaces such as parks, halls and other facilities.
The Quick Response Grants are open all year round and applications are made available for not-for-profit community groups looking for funding of up to $2,500. Applications must be received 21 days prior to you starting your activity.
The Quick Response Grant Guidelines and Assessment Criteria will assist with eligibility and what is required to submit an application. Prior to completing the application form you should contact Wellington Shire Council to seek feedback on your proposal. This will ensure that you are applying in the correct funding category and your application meets the funding guidelines.
The Assessment Criteria form should be used as a reference by all applicants when they are completing their application form. It is used to assess all Quick Response Grant applications.
