Community groups in Cabonne are being urged to apply for Council grants to improve the “liveability” of their areas.
Applications opened last week for the first round of Cabonne Council’s 2020-21 Community Assistance Program grants. These grants 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 opened on Friday 17th July 2020 and will close at 5pm on Friday 28th August 2020.
Application forms are available on Council’s website www.cabonne.nsw.gov.au and further details about the grants can be obtained by contacting Cabonne Council’s Acting Leader – Community and Economy, Naomi Schroder on 6392 3200.
