A $50,000 temporary grants program has been set up to help fund activities to enhance community wellbeing in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, with applications invited from local organisations.
The intent of the Community Organisation Assistance Grant Program (Connectivity, Cohesion and Capacity Building) funding is to:
- Support and enable organisations to promote connection and social cohesion in the community
- Strengthen the capacity and resilience of community organisation to deliver services
Council would like to acknowledge the importance of community and not-for-profit organisations and their volunteers for the valuable contribution towards achievement of the MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan vision of a connected, sustainable and thriving community.
Community Organisation Assistance Grant Program will provide support for small
to medium community based organisations
undertaking projects that provide community connection, digital inclusion and
help overcome social isolation. Eligible organisations can apply for grants between $2000 - $5000.
Funding is limited and applications will be assessed in order of submission. Funding will be made available to successful applicants after the closing date, Friday 27 November 2020.
