Grants available to help local businesses, communities thrive

Eurobodalla’s small to medium-sized businesses impacted by the summer bushfires can now apply for grants of up to $5,000 to help with business development.

Eurobodalla Council’s Business Resilience Grants program utilises $200,000 of Commonwealth Government disaster recovery funding to help Eurobodalla businesses impacted by the fires.

The grants may be used for things like marketing support, online and e-commerce development, business expansion, efficiency and growth, business development and business-based events.

Businesses wanting assistance with the grant application process can contact the newly-opened Eurobodalla Bushfire Recovery Support Service via 4474 7434, email or visit the shopfront in Vulcan Street, Moruya, next to Moruya Pharmacy.

In addition to the Business Resilience Grants, phase two of the Eurobodalla Relief Fund has been extended. It offers grants of up to $10,000 to community associations and business chambers for projects and events that celebrate, re-invigorate and strengthen Eurobodalla’s communities.  Applicants need to demonstrate how their project or event will focus on bushfire recovery.

A recent recipient of the grants was the River of Art, which collaborated with three local chambers of commerce and the Narooma Oyster Festival, to provide permanent public art murals in Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma. Each of the murals will reflect this year’s festival theme, resilience and renewal.

Applications for both grant programs close 5pm Wednesday 30 September.
