Eighteen community groups to receive financial assistance

At an extraordinary meeting of Dubbo Regional Council on Monday 12 December it was decided to formally endorse $15,000 worth of grants to 18 community groups.

The Financial Assistance Program is open to applicants that provide a range of essential social and community services which meet the community’s lifestyle and social needs.

Council dedicates $30,000 to the Community Financial Assistance Program each year to help ease the burden of not-for-profit organisations that contribute to our community and this is the first round of funding Council has to offer for the 2016-2017 financial year.
