The Community Grants Program is aimed at projects that enhance the quality of life for people living in the Port Macquarie-Hastings local government area. For the first time Council is introducing a Round Two in the General Community Grant category. (Entries to the Grant Round One closed on 21 June 2013).
The purpose of the General Grant Round Two is to provide funding to community groups and organisations to establish and implement neighbourhood projects that link up people who live in the same street or nearby. Particular target groups are seniors, frail aged, people with a disability, and newly arrived residents to the Port Macquarie-Hastings community. In this way the grant seeks to foster the development of caring communities.
For more detail on the purpose and objectives of the grant, and the eligibility and assessment criteria please read the Grant Guidelines.
Applications will be online when the Grant Round opens between Monday 18 November and Friday 13 December.
