Uralla Shire Community Grants Program - Individuals

Non-recurrent grants of up to $300 are available to residents of Uralla Shire to pursue achievements in their chosen area of expertise; this may include, but is not limited to, significant sports and recreation, arts and culture and academic endeavours.

Applicants must demonstrate a strong commitment to their area of endeavour and can demonstrate a high level of achievement. Their endeavour must be formally recognised by an accredited State, National or International Association.

Applications can be submitted any time of the year at least four (4) weeks prior to planned activity and will be accepted until funds are expended for this category.

Please Note: Even though an application may meet the eligibility criteria noted in the Guidelines, grants are highly competitive and success will depend on the number of applications received, the relative merit and quality of the application, how well the project aligns with priorities of the Community Grants Program and available funds. If the total number of applications received exceeds the amount of funds available, priority will be given to organisations that have not received funding within the previous three years.
