Earlier this month, we also announced that applications are now open for organisations and/or community groups who are interested in supporting drought affected communities within Shoalhaven and Southern NSW. We joined with our local MPs and The Hon Barnaby Joyce MP to make this announcement.

The grants funding is available for small to medium community groups/organisations to provide free group-based activities that deliver mental health and wellbeing benefits to people who live in drought affected communities in our region.

Up to $200,000 in funding is available and organisations, community groups and local governments who are based in the following local government areas are eligible to apply: Shoalhaven; Eurobodalla; Bega Valley; Snowy Monaro; Queanbeyan Palerang; Goulburn Mulwaree; Yass Valley and Upper Lachlan Shire.
