Community Financial Assistance Donations 2022-23 Round 2 - opening soon

The second round of Community Financial Assistance Donations for 2022/23 is opening soon, so now is the time for community groups to plan for upcoming projects that may benefit from a donation.

“Each year Council offers two rounds of Community Financial Assistance Donations to support local groups and organisations,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “Council encourages community groups to apply for up to $500 to put towards a project that promotes or supports people living in our region.”

“Over the last five years Council has donated over $85,000 to 200 community groups and organisations through the Community Financial Assistance Donations. Projects are diverse, and with a wide range of community groups among the recipients funding has gone towards all kinds of sports, the arts, school and pre-school programs, local shows, environmental projects, community events, local history, and groups supporting the community with services such as rescue, disabilities and mental health,” said Cr Doolan.

“It is great to see so many different groups and programs benefit from these community grants, and I’d strongly encourage any community group to put an application in for their various projects,” concluded Cr Doolan.

Application forms, along with the guidelines for donations, will be available on Council’s website under the Have Your Say tab from 30 January 2023. Hard copy application forms will also be available at Council Administration Offices in Coolah and Coonabarabran. 

Applications close Monday 27 February 2023 and will be considered at the March 2023 Council Meeting.
