Gwydir Shire Council is committed to ensuring that community groups and community based projects within the Shire are supported through the development of skills and resources, enabling local organisations to achieve funding security and sustainability.

To achieve this goal Council offers support to community groups by assisting them to identify appropriate grants for their community projects, prepare and submit grant applications, liaise with funding providers and facilitate partnerships across the community to deliver bigger and better funding outcomes for the Shire. Council are also able to auspice grants for those not for profit groups that are not legally incorporated.

To  streamline this process community groups are being asked to complete an application for assistance which can be found in the link below. By completing this document it will help Council Officers identify the types of projects your group would like to undertake, you will then be sent an alert when a suitable funding stream is found, and Council can work with your group to help prepare and submit an application.

If you have any questions about grant assistance please do not hesitate to contact Georgia Standerwick on 0409 901 540.
