Uralla Shire Council’s Community Grants program is open for community groups and organisations to apply for grants of up to $3000 for eligible projects, activities, or events. 

Uralla Shire Council Mayor Robert Bell reflected on the opportunity the grants provide to support the range of local projects initiated by community groups.

“We’re lucky to have many proactive community groups whose contributions make Uralla Shire such a vibrant and welcoming place,” said Mayor Bell.    

“The Community Grants Program is one of the ways Council is able to assist the fantastic work of our community organisations each year,” said Mayor Bell.

The Community Grants Program provides financial support to community groups and organisations to undertake projects, run activities and events or purchase items which benefit the Uralla Shire community under the following categories:

• Community development

• Arts and cultural development

• Social services

• Environmental initiatives

• Sport and recreational activities

• Educational support

Uralla Shire Council General Manager Ms Kate Jessep is encouraging groups to get in touch with Council if they have any questions about the application process.

“Council is pleased to support a wide range of projects as part of the Community Grants Program. New and creative ideas are very welcome,” Ms Jessep said. 

Individuals can also apply for a Community Grant for up to $300 any time of year, provided that the application is submitted at least four weeks prior to the commencement of the project or activity.

Guidelines and application forms are available on Council's Community Grants page:

Applications close for this round of grants on 28 February 2022.
