Council has proposed a new Venue Hire Grant Funding Program for local not-for-profit organisations.
The program will provide a subsidy for venue hire to organisations that deliver services, activities, events and programs in the community. The proposed funding program affirms our commitment to support locally-driven projects, which meet identified local needs.
If approved, the funding will be available to a wide range of local groups that support the community, culture and diversity of the Georges River area.
Council plans to offer two rounds of grant applications per year where groups and organisations can apply for up to $30,000 per annum.
Council is currently reviewing submissions from the community on the draft Policy and Grant Funding Program, which closed on 8 February 2017.
