The second round of community grants funding for 2019-20 will be open from Monday, April 6.
Grants made under the program are for projects or initiatives which contribute to the achievement of one or more of eight identified strategies of the Regional Community Strategic Plan 2016-2036.
Council has already provided almost $14,000 in financial assistance to the following four community organisations under the first round of this year's Community Grants Program.
"A grant application-writing workshop was to be conducted on April 2. Unfortunately, this workshop has had to be postponed as a consequence of the current COVID-19 health situation," a council spokesperson said.
To help the applicants, council has put up information on the site with tips to help community organisations to complete the grants application form.
"These notes are accessible on Council's website or by following this link https://www.yassvalley.nsw.gov.au/our-council/news/article/660.
"Yass Valley Council is committed to supporting local organisations, which is needed more than ever in the current COVID-19 situation. Grants programs are a way to provide financial assistance to help community organisations continue their worthwhile and generous work in the Yass Valley," Mayor Rowena Abbey said.
Council still hopes to offer the workshop when it is safe to do so.
The workshop is to be facilitated by The Grants Guy, Keith Whelan, and will address application-writing for all types of grants.
Applications for the second round of 2019-20 Community Grants will be open from Monday, April 6 and close on Friday, May 8.
Application forms (Form 146 - Community Grants) can be accessed on Council's website or by following this link https://www.yassvalley.nsw.gov.au/our-council/contact-us/forms/
