Community Funding Available

A Contestable Grants Fund has been introduced by Grey Council to assist in the vision of becoming a thriving, connected and resilient District.

Community Groups are now invited to apply for the fund, with applications open from 17 August 2020 to 30 September 2020.

There has been $20,000 allocated from Council for this fund.

The grant applications will need to align with Council’s vision and outcomes, which have been updated following community engagement undertaken between February and June this year.

"Council asked the community what was wanted and needed to be Our Ideal Grey District. We received over 500 comments, ideas and advice from meetings, pop-ups, school visits, adverts and discussions," Engagement & Policy Facilitator, Penny Kirk said.

"We also looked at the 2019 Resident Satisfaction Survey information and have put this all together for these big, bold, and truly authentic Grey District Vision and Outcomes."
