Annual Community Grants Scheme Policy: 24 October to 24 November 2017

Council has placed the Annual Community Grants Scheme Policy on public exhibition from 25 October to 24 November 2017 in order to obtain community feedback.

The Annual Community Grants Scheme has been running for three years, replacing the Section.356 (S.356) Donations scheme, in order to simplify applications and move to a more transparent and competitive process.

Council recently conducted a review of the policy and process to ensure that both reflect reality and best practice, and a number of improvements to the policy have now been made.

The amended Annual Community Grants Scheme Policy can be viewed below or in hardcopy at Council’s Corporate Centre, 43 Oliver Avenue, Goonellabah.

Submissions relating to the new draft policy outlining grounds of objection or support can be made online, emailed to council@lismore.nsw.gov.au or sent to the General Manager, Lismore City Council, PO Box 23A, Lismore, NSW 2480.

For enquiries, please contact Council’s Partnering and Community Engagement Officer Kath Parry on 1300 87 83 87.

Submissions must be received by Friday, 24 November 2017.
