Community Grants

Survive & Thrive Community and Business Activation Grants

In response to the unique economic opportunities and challenges of COVID-19, Waratah-Wynyard Council has committed funds for the Survive and Thrive Grants Program.

The primary purpose of the Survive and Thrive Grant Program is to help Waratah-Wynyard-based businesses and community groups thrive and innovate to mitigate the effects of COVID-19. The Survive and Thrive Grants Program has been put in place to enable the continuation of economic activity and strengthening of our local economy and community.

Waratah-Wynyard Council understands that practical assistance is required to support the changing needs of the community. Business and community groups need support to adapt their service delivery model in a safe way. New innovations need financial support to change from a good idea into reality.

The Survive and Thrive Grants program is a time-limited, response funding program for community groups and businesses who are currently facing increased demand and/or operational changes. They also provide opportunities for new, start-up retail or tourism ventures that may have been imagined in recent months.

Round 2 Survive and Thrive Community and Business Activation Minor Grant Round is NOW CLOSED.
