Australia Day event grants for community groups
October 20, 2021

Funding is now available to help community groups plan Australia Day events and activities in Wellington Shire.

Australia Day events are held in various towns across the municipality each year and play an important role in bringing local communities together.

Wellington Shire Council is offering grants for Australia Day ceremonies and celebrations that reflect the nation’s diversity, past achievements and bright future.

The level of support provided by Council will depend on the event's potential to deliver benefits to the Wellington community. Events should also reflect the purpose of Australia Day.

Applications are open until 5pm on Monday 15 November.
