Council is now seeking expressions of interest from any community group that wants to be considered for the allocation of any funds from the Council in the 2017/2018 budget, as a donation or financial grant towards any activity that will benefit the Shire.

Council is currently reviewing donations expenditure and advises that the total budget for donations will possibly be reduced substantially from that of previous years.

Organisations that have received an ongoing donation allocation in past years must formally apply again, and not rely on the Council’s ongoing support.

Any organisation seeking assistance must submit an application to be considered for funding.

Application forms are available from either the Warialda or Bingara Offices, or by emailing

The completed application form must be returned to either Council office prior to 4pm on Friday 28th April 2017, or posted to:
