Community Financial Assistance Program



Blayney Shire Council provides financial assistance for local community organisations 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.

Each year there are 2 rounds of funding with applications called in June and November. 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.
