As part of their $470,000 COVID-19 Recovery Plan Council is pleased to be launching the $150,000 business and community grant program to provide support to assist in community and economic recovery within the Council area.
We want to ensure that these organisations, which are so integral to our region, are able to continue, and envision these grants will be of some assistance in resuming their operations in this ‘new normal’ environment.” said Mayor Bim Lange.
The grant monies may be used to cover a range of expenses including, but not limited to:
Setting up and buying materials to support COVID Safe Plans or the safe management of operating the business or community group;
Assist in matching funds for other grant applications made by the business;
Obtain necessary business advice, support or assistance to develop a new business plan;
Undertake and support any marketing and promotion activity;
Purchasing new inventory, materials or other consumables (for clubs/groups) to operate or commence fundraising activities.
