Council Policy on Financial Assistance to Incorporated Organisations and Clubs

Applications for financial assistance will be prioritised based on what the Council believes will provide the greatest overall benefit to the quality of life of the residents of the Shire of Plantagenet. Applicants will be categorised as follows in order to assist in determining priority of funding:

  1. Category 1 - Groups which can show that they are expending resources in maintaining or overseeing Shire facilities or equipment. Grant amount will consider savings to the Council as a result of the Group’s activities;
  2. Category 2 – Groups which undertake tourism and economic development activities which have a positive economic benefit to the Shire. Grant amounts will consider the scope of economic benefits provided; and
  3. Category 3 - All other applications, which should focus on provision of equipment; not administration or general operational costs.
