Local COVID-19 Responsiveness Grant available

Local organisations, community groups and businesses of the Coonamble Local Government Area have the opportunity to apply for a small grant to be more responsive to COVID-19 health requirements and/or to reduce transmissions.

The Office of Local Government has made available a pool of funding for this purpose.

It can be used to recover costs, from 1 July 2021, associated with your response to the pandemic or for costs you might incur if you were to undertake a project or activity in the near future. Funding must be spent by 30 June 2022.

While not setting a limit on any individual application, the intent is to distribute the funding across a broad range of organisations, community groups and businesses, so some applicants may only receive partial funding if the proposed cost is especially high.

Applications should be submitted to Council before 4.30pm on Friday, 18 February 2020.
