The Emergency and Extraordinary Grants Program is allocated funding each financial year to provide an emergency or extraordinary source of grant funding for community organisations who meet the program requirements.
Applications for funding under this program will only be considered if a community organisation can demonstrate that the requirement for funding was unforeseen and therefore warrants consideration by Council (or its delegate) outside of its competitive funding programs.
