Attention all community groups in Canowindra: Cabonne Council are inviting community groups in the region to apply for Council grants that will improve the “liveability” of the area.
Community Assistance Program grants are designed to offer support to organisations focused on delivering positive benefits to Cabonne residents and contributing to the delivery of Council’s strategic policies. It is a competitive program aiming to provide a sustainable or ongoing benefit to communities like Canowindra, and applications are now open.
To be eligible for the Community Assistance Program, the applicant groups must be a not-for-profit organisation in the Cabonne Local Government Area. The group must also be undertaking a project on non-commercial facilities within the Shire. Individuals, projects for private commercial ventures and government organisations are not eligible to apply.
“Each project will be judged on its merits and the relative benefit it will return to the community,” said Cabonne Mayor Michael Hayes. “The grants are provided on a 50:50 basis but communities could provide their half of the funding through voluntary labour or in-kind contributions.”
Applications for Community Assistance Program funding will close at 5pm on Friday 31st July. Application forms can be downloaded and submitted online at www.cabonne.nsw.gov.au.
