Community Support Fund Now Open

Council is pleased to once again open its Community Support Fund Round 1 for the 2020/2021 financial year. 

The Community Support Fund is a small community grants program that is delivered and administered by Bellingen Shire Council with the aim to support local community activities that provides broad community benefit.

Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions in place by the State and Federal governments in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, Council is not currently able to offer the Community Event Sponsorship or Creative Placemaking Funds.  Council is hopeful that, by the time Round 2 is due to open in October/November, the circumstances will enable these grant programs to also be offered to the community.

The Community Support Fund will be open from Friday 1 May and close on Monday 1 June. Please refer to the Guidelines for more information prior to making an application.  Applications should be submitted to on or before the closing date.
