Bodangora Community Benefit Fund

Dubbo Regional Council will be entering a caretaker period from 5 November 2021, prior to Local Government Elections.

During caretaker period, there will not be an elected body that can deliberate on grant applications.  Therefore, opening of Bodangora Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund Round 7 2021 will be postponed until early 2022.

Community projects must meet the following criteria for funding:

  1. Deliver social, cultural, economic or environmental benefits to local communities of the Wellington district and Villages which is part of Dubbo Regional Council Local Government Area;
  2. Address an identified community priority;
  3. Demonstrate that any ongoing or recurrent costs of the project can be met by the community group once grant funding has been expended;
  4. The organisation must demonstrate the capacity to manage funds and deliver the project;
  5. Provide acquittal report within four (4) weeks of project completion. 


Eligible groups can apply for up to $10,000 and only one application per organisation will be accepted this round.
