Get in quick for Community Assistance Grants
July 15, 2019

Time is running out to secure up to $5,000 from Council for local events, projects or facilities.

The latest round of Community Assistance Grants close on 1 August, for initiatives that build capacity, promote participation and work together to maintain community assets and support cultural development.

Funding applications are currently being invited from Wellington Shire not for profit groups seeking funding of $2,000 to $5,000 in the following categories:

  • Community Events - applications will be considered for events that celebrate the community, or aspects of culture and identity.
  • Community Projects - applications will be considered for projects that fulfil a demonstrated community need and benefit the diverse community.
  • Community Facilities – applications will be considered for minor capital works projects that increase the access and use of a facility for the community.

Wellington Shire Council Mayor Alan Hall said previous successful applicants presented strong cases of how Council funding would greatly benefit the communities of Wellington Shire.

“I look forward to seeing a broad range of applications again through this round of Community Assistance Grants and encourage groups considering seeking funding to send in their applications before 1 August,” Cr Hall said.
