Applications are now open for round three of the 2020/21 Community Assistance Program (CAP), so if your organisation is planning an  initiative, activity or program that will contribute to our community now is the time to apply!

Spokesperson for Communities Councillor Drew Wickerson said this program has proved its worth year after year.

“This funding program is all about supporting those projects and initiatives that really benefit our community, and it’s something we’re very proud to deliver,” said Cr Wickerson.

“It is important to remember that there are many ways that community groups can benefit from the Community Assistance Program.

“Whether it is the purchase of new equipment, or resources to support awareness and growth of a community initiative, to improving environmental sustainability, Council’s Community Assistance Program puts our community first.  

Water and Supporting a Better Environment Councillor Donna Kirkland encouraged groups to apply for the Environment and Sustainability category for this funding program.

“This category is designed to support projects that protect, maintain, and enhance our natural environment while strengthening our community’s capacity to live sustainably.

“Since Council brought in this category in 2019 we have been able to support some wonderful initiatives, and help our community put their passion for the environment into action.  

“This category can support a wide variety of activities including community education; on-ground works; targeted energy, waste and water improvements; or even a school sustainability project, so if you’ve got a great initiative that could do with some support, send in your application today!”  

Applications close 12 April 2021. For more information head to:
