Apply for financial assistance

Council provides financial assistance to individuals and organisations up to twice annually through its Community Assistance Policy.

Council first adopted its Financial Assistance Policy in 1998 to provide financial assistance to community groups and individuals wishing to exercise functions of Council in accordance with Section 356 of the Local Government Act 1993.

It has been revised a number of times since then and is now know as the Community Assistance Policy.

The policy provides for:

  • Ongoing / Regular Donations
  • Community Assistance Fund – one-off donations
  • External Grant Funding Assistance

A downloadable copy of the Community Assistance Policy (adopted August 2017) is available by clicking here.
