The Shire of Lake Grace works with interested stakeholders within the shire to:
Economic development, in general, refers to the actions, or policies, of communities and policy makers to promote the standard of living and economic health of a particular area.
This relates to, but is not limited to, areas such as safety, social inclusion, regional competitiveness, human capital, health and critical infrastructure.
The Shire of Lake Grace is dependent on grant funds to achieve many of its outcomes. It is important that we keep up to date with grants on offer and do our best to find best fit grants for our projects.
Community groups often need to apply for funding for a range of projects and we encourage those groups to contact the Shire for assistance in sourcing grant funding.
The Shire has a broad-based funding program for grants to support community-based activities. The focus of the program is for community driven events, projects and other initiatives that demonstrate community engagement. Applications are considered by Council to be included in the Shire of Lake Grace yearly Budget.
The next funding application round will be available from April 2019 for activities taking place from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.
