COVID-19 Facility Maintenance and Improvement Grant

The COVID-19 Facility Maintenance and Improvement Grant is to enable groups who have maintenance responsibility, or have a current peppercorn lease, for a Shire building, to apply for amounts up to $5,000 to undertake building maintenance or minor building improvements.

To apply for the grant, provide a letter to the Economic Development Manager at outlining the maintenance or improvement to be undertaken.  The following conditions will apply:

  3. Proposed works submissions are to be supported by a quote from a local trade / business with reasonable itemised costing of components.
  4. Grant is for outgoing funds only that support local businesses, not the payment of volunteer labour, donated materials etc.  
  5. Grant to be paid in arrears once work is complete.
  6. A final acquittal will be required once the works have been completed.
  7. This grant program is available until further notice.
