Information on the Scheme

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.

Please refer to the Supporting Documents for further information.
