Are you working on a project or event that will benefit our community? Apply today for round two of Council’s Community Assistance Program (CAP)!

Councillor for Communities Drew Wickerson said this annual grant program is dedicated to supporting the great work that is undertaken everyday by groups in our Region.

“We are very fortunate to have an incredibly strong sense of community, and this is really enhanced by the groups that bring us together,” said Cr Wickerson.

“This program is just one way that Council gives back to these organisations which benefit us all.

“The CAP has proved its worth year after year, and we have been honoured to support some fantastic initiatives and wonderful events.

“We know there are certainly fewer events going ahead this year, however we are very excited to support some great projects that contribute to our community and promote our local area.”

Councillor for Environment Donna Kirkland said she is excited about potential project applications across all eight categories, especially those for the Environment and Sustainability Scheme.

“We are lucky enough to live in a naturally stunning area of the world,” said Cr Kirkland.

“The Environment and Sustainability category is available to support projects which protect, maintain and enhance our wonderful environment or empower our community to live more sustainably.

“These don’t have to be major projects. It can be anything from a community education program to on-ground works, an efficiency initiative or even a school sustainability project.”

Applications for round two of the 2020/21 Community Assistance Program close Monday 26 October.
