Grants response to to novel coronavirus (COVID-19)
Successful grant recipients from previous rounds who are experiencing difficulty in delivering their project in this current environment are advised to contact the Grants Team via email@example.com with the details of your issue so we can discuss options going forward. For example, you may wish to seek a project variation to extend your project dates.
For more information on other grants aimed to assist groups affected by the COVID-19 environment, check out council's other funding opportunities webpage. Council’s website has lots of information on Community Support to help you through this challenging time, including a practical At Home in My Neighbourhood #CovidKindness resource hub – which will help you stay informed about the different supports available across governments and the community sector.
All funding program guidelines should be read in conjunction with the Community Grants Policy.
