Funding Applications now open

Dubbo Regional Council invites eligible community organisations to take advantage of its Financial Assistance Program and apply for a share in $15,000.

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

Mayor of the Dubbo Region, Ben Shields 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,” Clr Shields said.

This is the first round of funding Council has to offer for the 2019/2020 financial year.

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

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

Applications open Thursday 1 August 2019.

Applications close 5pm Friday 30 August 2019.

Successful applicants will be determined by Council Ordinary meeting Monday, 23 September 2019.
