Stronger Country Communities Grants


In 2018, after consultation with the community, Council submitted 34 applications to the Stronger Country Community Fund.  After careful deliberation the NSW Government confirmed the successful applicants.  The field was very competitive, with around 1000 applications received state wide.  Since 2017, we’ve successfully obtained 14 Stronger Country Communities Fund Grants (11 in 2018 alone and 3 in 2017).
