Round Two of the $50,000 Cowra Community Grants Scheme 2016-17 is open to eligible individuals and community groups until Tuesday 28 February 2017 to lodge applications. “The response to Round One of the Community Grant Program last year was very positive, with over $24,000 in funding awarded to 22 very deserving community projects,” said General Manager, Paul Devery. Successful applicants in Round One Grants were for a variety of important local projects including money for mattresses to needy families; film-making and musical workshops; restoration and repair work on community buildings; and helping local sports clubs to upgrade their equipment: Groups applying must be not-for-profit and either based in Cowra Shire or propose a project that directly benefits the local community. Applicants that were successful in Round One of the Community Grants Program are able to apply again under Round Two, provided they have submitted their acquittal report. Applicants are eligible to receive up to a total value of $3,000 in grant funds per financial year.

Application forms and guidelines are available at Council’s website: and at Council’s front desk at 116 Kendal St, Cowra. For more information, contact Cowra Council’s Grants and Executive Projects Officer, Lawrance Ryan on 6340 2035 or email:
