Community Assistance Grants: Community groups in Cabonne are being urged to apply for Council grants to improve the “liveability” of their areas. Applications are open for Cabonne Council’s 2019-20 Community Assistance Program grants, which are designed to provide an ongoing or sustainable benefit to local communities. In order to be eligible for the Community Assistance Program, applicants must be a not-for-profit organisation in the Cabonne Local Government Area and be undertaking a project on non-commercial facilities within the Shire. Each project will be assessed on its merits and the relative benefit it will return to the community. Grants are provided on a 50:50 basis, but communities can provide their half of the funding through voluntary labour or in-kind contributions. Applications for CAP funding close at 5pm on Friday 30 August 2019. Application forms and further details can be obtained by contacting Cabonne Council’s Grants Officer Naomi Schroder on 6392 3200 or by visiting the Council’s website www.cabonne.nsw.gov.au
