With only $50,000 remaining in the 2023-24 CAF budget, council encourages applications for projects that are ready for immediate commencement or purchase.

The annual program aims to build stronger communities and deliver benefits to residents and visitors through grants to community-led projects and facility improvements.

Mayor Ian Smith said CAF is a valuable council program and he encourages all eligible community groups to consider applying.

“This fund helps us support even more groups in our community with their important work,” Cr Smith said.

“Up to $3000 is available for small community-based projects or activities, and up to $15,000 for larger purchases or capital works.”

“There are four different funding streams available, so it’s important that people head online to read the eligibility criteria.”

“One of the mandatory requirements is applicants must first speak with a council program officer before lodging their application,” he said.

Applications open at 9.00am on Thursday February 1, and close on Friday March 1 at 5.00pm.
