Congratulations to all of our successful recipients for the 2020 - 2021 Round of the Wingecarribee Community Assistance Scheme which was formally endorsed by Council at its meeting on 8 July 2020.
Local sports clubs, churches, charities, schools and childhood education centres, choirs, Scouts, Guides, community and hobby groups were just some of the local organisations to receive funding last year from the Community Assistance Scheme Funding Pool.
The Wingecarribee Community Assistance Scheme (CAS) encourages the development of community initiatives in line with Council’s Community Strategic Plan – Wingecarribee 2031.
All goals and strategies from the plan seek to attain an outcome that is sustainable and strives for equity, access and equal rights, particularly for the disadvantaged and vulnerable.
The Community Assistance Scheme aims to build capacity, encourage participation and support initiatives that promote partnerships and working together to maintain our community and its assets.
The Environmental and Sustainability Grants are also available through this program.
Under the scheme three types of funding are available, Community Assistance Scheme Donations up to $600, Community Assistance Scheme Grants up to $7,000 and Environment and Sustainability Grants up to $2,000.
Guidelines for both funding programs are available below in the Supporting Documents section.
All applications for Wingecarribee Community Assistance Grants are made and submitted using an online portal called SmartyGrants. You will require a login to use this system. If you have used the SmartyGrants portal for an application previously (even if it was with a different organisation), the same login can be used. If you are using this portal for the first time you will need to create a login.
Applications for the Community Assistance Scheme 2020/2021 round are now closed. See a list of successful grant recipients below.
