Lithgow City Council is taking applications from not-for-profit organisations to fund local community projects and activities. While the Covid -19 pandemic is impacting on all sectors of our community, the work of our not-for-profit organisations has never been more important.

The Mayor of Lithgow City Council, Clr Ray Thompson, is encouraging local community organisations to apply for funding under the current round of Council’s Financial Assistance program for 2020.

“The Financial Assistance Program offers grants of up to $3,000 to community organisations to help them with local projects and activities that demonstrate a broad community benefit,” said the Mayor.

Examples of Financial Assistance requests that Council may assist with include:

  • Projects that enhance educational and employment opportunities, for example, supporting young people with disability to find pathways to further education and/ or employment.
  • Programs that retain, respect and strengthen our community and support the unique needs of various groups across the LGA.
  • Initiatives that celebrate and support diverse communities, including Aboriginal and multicultural communities.
  • Programs that focus on promoting positive health, including mental health, and wellbeing at all stages of life.
  • Events or initiatives that support and celebrate the cultural and creative richness of our community.
  • Projects that balance, protect and enhance our diverse environment, both natural and built.

“Each year Council allocates funding to a number of worthwhile community groups so I would like to remind organisations that applications for Round 1 close on 30 April 2020,”, concluded the Mayor.

All requests for Financial Assistance must be on the official Financial Assistance Application Form. Application forms and guidelines can be obtained by visiting Council’s website. Funding will be available from the beginning of July 2020.

Further information about Council’s Financial Assistance program can be obtained from Council’s Community Development Officer Ali Kim on 6354 9999.
