Government grant programs
Council employs a full-time Grants Officer to access and apply for funding from NSW Government and Australian Government grant programs.
Did you know that last year (18/19), we were successful in attracting more than $18 million in grants for our community? These grants provided a wide-range of infrastructure, community services and facilities that would not otherwise be funded. These programs reach across our community – ranging from $15,000 for a refill drinking fountain program, $250,000 for a flood warning network, $143,000 for a 3D mapping tool, $450,000 to help save koalas, $29,000 for school zone improvements at Bangalow and $9.5 million for the Byron Bay Bypass - this is just to name a few of the projects funded.
