The City of Burnside sought feedback from the community on the Draft Community Funding Policy from 3 February – 3 March.
Following feedback received during this period, a new category for “History and Heritage” was added to the Community Grants Program component of the Community Funding Policy.
The Community Funding Policy outlines how Council provides funding to individuals and community organisations whose work in the community enriches the municipality and aligns with the strategic plan desired outcomes of the City of Burnside “Be the Future of Burnside” Our Community Plan 2016-2026.
This Policy is a flexible mechanism to support and strengthen individuals, families and local organisations in our community and will assist in identifying their needs and developing solutions at a local level. It has a focus on the people of the City of Burnside. Community strengthening principles underpin the approach taken to funding outcomes. These principles guide both how Council work with the community and the initiatives that will be prioritised for funding.
This Policy was adopted on 9 May. To view this version, please see the Document Library above.
