This fund aims to encourage the creation of bold new infrastructure that directly benefits and is strongly supported by the community. It will open for applications in May 2020.
If you have a project that will be eligible, we recommend you contact the Funding Advisor early so we can work with you on your application.
Applicants must demonstrate they have considered life-cycle costs of the proposed infrastructure and show a clear understanding of ownership and ongoing maintenance costs.
Council offers matched funding to help communities build new infrastructure in the Far North. The fund does not cover repair or replacement of existing infrastructure.
The total fund is $100,000. The fund is contestable. Applicants need at least 50% of the project cost secured from sources outside of Council.
