As part of its Financial & In-Kind Assistance Policy, Council offers a Community Assistance Program.
Previously termed 'Gifts and Donations' this program generally provides allocations to:
- services, clubs and organisations that are voluntary, not for profit and have a community focus; or
- recognise and support young people in individual academic, civic or sporting achievements, such as school awards, bursaries etc
Each year Council dedicates $10,000 to this program.
Advertising for this program occurs in April and May each year, with Council considering all applications annually at the next possible meeting of Council.
