Financial Assistance Program applications closing soon

Time is running out for eligible community organisations to take advantage of Dubbo Regional Council’s Financial Assistance Program and apply for a share in $15,000.

Applications for the program close at 5.00pm on Friday 25 November 2016.

To be successful, applicants must meet criteria based on merit and benefits to the community and be based in the Dubbo Regional Council LGA or deliver a service or activity in the LGA.

Council’s Community Services Manager Business Support Jamie Angus said previous recipients included charitable, health, animal wellbeing, and environmental organisations as well as special interest groups.

“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,” Mr Angus said.

“This is the first round of funding Council has to offer for the 2016-2017 financial year.”

“The funding often provides a much-needed boost to help community groups complete a project or pay for resources that help them deliver valued activities and services to the people of Dubbo Regional Council LGA.”

“If you are part of a not-for-profit organisation in Wellington, Dubbo or surrounding villages we encourage you to apply.”

Successful applicants will be determined by Council at its meeting on Monday, 19 December 2016. 

Application forms are available at Council’s Customer Service Centre on the corner of Church and Darling Streets, Dubbo; at the Wellington Office on the corner of Warne Street and Nanima Crescent; and at www.dubbo.nsw.gov.au/financial-grants
