Shire not-for-profit organisations that wish to apply for grant funding through the Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) Community Funding Program are reminded that applications for the next round close on Friday 9 June 2017. Council provides support to encourage and assist individuals and groups to make a positive and ongoing contribution to the community’s well being, cultural life and community resilience.
“The way the fund is administered changed recently and applications are now assessed on a six monthly basis by a Council committee,” said LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“LPSC recognises the vital role that community groups play in the strengthening of our social fabric. Our Community Funding Program is underpinned by a philosophy of partnership and collaboration,” he said.
“To be eligible for funding, the event must be held within LPS, be a not-for-profit entity or auspiced by one, hold current and relevant public liability insurance to the value of $20 million, commence the project/activity within the current financial year it is being sought, be financially viable and demonstrate environmental, social and economic benefits to the Shire,” he continued.
“The Community Funding Program provides three streams of funding; seed funding, growth funding and infrastructure improvements.
