Council's Community Assistance program has two rounds being offered each year (August & February). South Burnett Regional Council encourages applications from not-for-profit organisations based within the region whose events and projects benefit our residents. The program has three strands of funding:
Community In-kind Assistance;
Community Elite Performance Assistance.
The amount of funding available in each round varies according to budget. The number of eligible applications received will be a determining factor in grant allocations.
Applicants should check their eligibility before submitting applications.
Round 2 2016/17 – 1 February - 28 February 2017
No applications will be accepted on old application forms and no applications for Community Assistance or In-kind Assistance will be accepted out of round. Elite Performance Assistance can be requested throughout the entire year.
View the relevant policies below.
The intention of this funding program is to provide assistance to not-for-profit organisations based within the South Burnett Regional Council area that increase the number of South Burnett residents engaged in physical and/or healthy programs and activities.
This funding program is competitive and applications will be assessed on merit.
All successful applications must be able to provide participant improvement survey data in the acquittal report.
The funding program will provide sponsorship for individual projects and activities of up to $2,000.
Council does not support 100% of any activity with 60% being the maximum percentage able to be funded.
$10,000 will be allocated for Round 1 - 2016/2017
