SUPPLEMENTARY ROUND 

Open 1st October 2020 & Closes 16th November 2020

A one-off opportunity to run a supplementary round of the CGFS for the 2020-21 financial year has been identified.  The opportunity presented as a result of unallocated funds from the original round as the Major Grants and Major Event Sponsorship categories were undersubscribed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic State of Emergency social distancing restrictions.

The Shire welcomes submissions from individuals, community groups, not-for-profit and commercial organisations that are seeking support for projects, activities and events that address identified community needs. In doing this, the Shire will work with you/your group to help build a sustainable community and improve the quality of life for people in our Shire. Applicants are expected to provide as much contribution as possible to their projects, activities, and events.

COMMUNITY GRANTS  – up to $2,000 

EVENT SPONSORSHIP – up to $2,000
