Blayney Shire Council


Community Financial Assistance Program


Blayney Shire Council provides grants for local community organisations and businesses in accordance with Policy 3I Community Financial Assistance.  This Program enables Council and the community to work together to help make Blayney Shire a great place to live.

Applications are called in July and January via a public notice published in the local newspaper and on Council's website. Applications are assessed by a committee and recommendations are then endorsed by Council. Funds are released following endorsement by council.  At the conclusion of each project, applicants are required to complete an acquittal form.

For more information, a copy of the Guidelines, Application Form and Acquittal Form are available below.
Application forms and the closing date for applications, will be notified on this website for the period when the Community Financial Assistance Program is open.

Council also provides financial support to Village Progress Associations and Public Hall Committees regarding Public Liability Insurance and to committee groups with rates and charges (i.e. sewer and waste). A copy of the Application Form can be found below.
