Community Development Grant Program Review
The Community Development Grant Program has recently been revised with the aim of providing a grant program which will best suit the needs of the community, encouraging and building capacity within local community groups and organisations to deliver a range of community development-based events and projects within the Shoalhaven. The program seeks to empower individuals and groups by providing them with the skills and support they need to effect and drive change in their own communities.
The funding program provides small grants for design, implementation and completion of community development projects that support and enhance the lives of people in the Shoalhaven. The program financially assists local not-for-profit, incorporated or auspiced community groups and organisations to develop and deliver local community development events and projects that align with the key themes and priorities identified by the community in Council’s Community Strategic Plan.
The newly prepared draft documents have been created to improve the application process and to improve clarity and transparency in the delivery of this funding program. To write or upload your submission see the Grant Program Review Survey.
Submission period 14 September 2020 to 12 October 2020.
