Council Financial Assistance

Council is permitted to contribute money or otherwise grant financial assistance to persons for the purpose of exercising its functions.

Due to limited funding available within Council’s budget, Council seeks to provide funding to only those individuals or organisations that provide the most benefit to the community and the funding is utilised for purposes which support, and are consistent with the Council’s Community Strategic Plan.

Council provides two opportunities for financial assistance under the Public Donations Fund and the Community Enhancement. Community, sporting and educational groups wishing to apply for financial assistance from Moree Plains Shire Council for events, functions and sponsorship are encouraged to apply.

Public Donations

Under the Public Donations fund, Council will consider eligible applications for financial assistance at its first meeting in each financial quarter except in the first quarter of each calendar year, when it may be considered at the first or second meeting of Council All applicants are required to complete and submit a Public Donations Application Form to enable the application to be considered. A maximum of $3,000 is available under this fund.
