The Community Grants Program enables community groups and organisations to design, implement and complete projects that support and enhance the lives of residents of the Shoalhaven.
Community Grants will be offered annually.
Grants workshops will be conducted for community members, groups, organisations in April/May each year. These workshops will develop ideas for projects. At the end of each workshop project ideas will be presented to the whole meeting. A popular vote will be held on which projects will be progressed to the development stage.
A maximum of twelve ideas will be progressed to application stage.
Community Development staff will work with each project to develop it for grant application. Staff will assist in finding an auspicing body for the application (if necessary).
An application for grant funding is not a guarantee of funding. Each application will be assessed on its own merit.
If an application is not successful advice will be provided to the applicant of alternate funding possibilities.
Applications are due at close of business on June1st each year.
Grants will be offered up to a maximum of $2000.
