In March 2020, Narromine Shire Council was successful in securing $1,000,000 of funding through the Australian Governments Drought Communities Program.
Council resolved to allocate $200,000 of the $1,000,000 to a ‘Facilities Maintenance Grants Program’ for our community and sporting groups and not-for-profit organisations.
Narromine Shire Council’s General Manager, Jane Redden said “the facilities maintenance grant programme allows community and sporting groups, along with not-for-profit organisations to apply for much-need funds to assist in facility upgrades”
“Community groups and organisations are invited to apply for funds of up to $20,000 to undertake capital works projects”
“Council is excited to be able to support community projects” she said
Applications for the Facilities Maintenance Grants Program are invited from Tuesday 7 April 2020 with applications closing 5pm, 1 May 2020.
