Community Organisation Assistance Grants

​A temporary grants program set up to help fund activities to enhance community wellbeing in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic has now closed.

The intent of the Community Organisation Assistance Grant Program (Connectivity, Cohesion and Capacity Building) funding was 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.

The Program provided support for small to medium-sized community based organisations undertaking projects that provided community connection, digital inclusion and help overcome social isolation. Eligible organisations applied for grants between $2000 - $5000.

This grant program has now closed and the successful applicants are as follows:

  • Boambee East Neighbourhood Centre
  • Eastern Dorrigo Ulong Community Hall Management Committee
  • Genhealth (Headspace Coffs Harbour)
  • Lowanna Community Hall Management Committee
  • Sawtell Super Fun Day
  • South Coffs Community Gardens
  • Volunteer Australia Coffs Harbour
  • Westside Tennis Club
  • Woolgoolga Regional Community Gardens
