The new Working Together Staying Strong Funding Support Program aims to assist Central Coast community groups and organisations to deliver critical support services to vulnerable and at-risk groups in response to the COVID -19 pandemic.
You can apply for funding between $1,000 to $10,000 in combined funding and in-kind Council services. The program is open from 1 May 2020 until 30 September 2020 or prior if all funds have been expended.
The ClubGRANTS scheme in the Central Coast's Local Government Area is funded by local registered clubs to provide community support through a Local Committee.
Due to the current COVID -19 pandemic and the government requirement to close all clubs, the Central Coast Local Committee has cancelled the 2020 ClubGRANTS round.
