Photo: Woo Back 2 was successful in obtaining a $5,000 community grant in the 2015/2015 program.Council is looking to streamline community and heritage grant application procedures to ensure the process encourages individuals and community organisations to apply for funding. Council’s draft Community Grant policy and draft Local Heritage Grants Program policy are currently on exhibition for community review and feedback, until Monday, 30th May 2016.
The Community Grant policy brings together Council’s Community Small Grant Program (CSGP) and Community Facilities Infrastructure Grant (CFIG). The new approach intends to meet the objectives of the two previous programs with efficiencies in program administration and introducing six categories for funding to assist with community development – Community and Culture, Recreation and Leisure, Sports and Health, Children, Youth and Senior Services, Welfare and Natural Environment.
The Local Heritage Grant Program policy review was undertaken in light of outcomes from previous years’ Local Heritage Grants Program and changes are in line with the Office of Environment and Heritage 2013 Guidelines. The policy has been broadened so that the program can provide financial incentive to, not only works, but projects that will foster positive attitudes towards local heritage and facilitates long-term strategic projects.
The draft policies can be viewed online (yassvalley.nsw.gov419论坛/council/exhibition) or at Council’s Administration Office – 209 Comur Street YASS. The community can make a submission to Council in writing or email on any aspect of the content of the draft policies – PO Box 6 YASS NSW 2582 or [email protected]论坛, up until 5:00pm on Monday, 30th May 2016.
