Youth Participation Grants

Our current and forthcoming grants programs are now on hold while we assess the best way to provide value to the whole community which is also adjusting to the effects of COVID-19. The community will be invited to provide input and feedback into our new Community Grants programs soon. The new programs will look at how we can best support our local community through these challenging times. Please follow Council on Facebook and watch this space for updates on the launch of the new grants programs.
