$10,000 available for projects and events to celebrate, re-invigorate and strengthen Eurobodalla


Grants of up to $10,000 are available for projects and events to celebrate, re-invigorate and strengthen Eurobodalla’s communities.

Distributed under phase 2 of the Eurobodalla Disaster Relief Fund, the grants are aimed to stimulate the shire’s social and economic recovery following the devastating bushfires with Council advising that business chambers and community associations are invited to apply.

The grants represent an opportunity for organisations to receive a quick injection of funds to deliver an event or project that helps our community, activates a public place or supports local businesses.

Businesses, community groups and not-for-profits wishing to apply are encouraged to contact a local chamber or community association to discuss opportunities to collaborate.

The Eurobodalla Disaster Relief Fund, overseen by the Eurobodalla Disaster Relief Management Committee, was established in response to the 2019-20 bushfires that burnt 80 per cent of the Eurobodalla Shire. 125 generous donors contributed a total of $274,903 to the fund.

Phase 1 of grant funding went to those whose primary place of residence was significantly impacted by the bushfires and were facing financial hardship. It distributed $127,000 to 127 successful applicants from areas including Cadgee, Catalina, Eurobodalla, Jeremadra, Malua Bay, Mogo, Moruya, Narooma, Nelligen, Nerrigundah, Rosedale, Runnyford, Surf Beach, Tinpot and Woodlands.

Phase 2 of the fund is aimed at supporting social and economic development via community-building events.

Applications for the grants close 5pm Monday 31 August 2020.
