Drought Communities Programme - Community Applications

Applications are now closed. 

Gilgandra Shire Council has been allocated up to $1 million in the Drought Communities Programme to deliver benefits to drought affected communities. Applications from community organisations have now closed and will be considered at the March 2020 Council meeting. 

The intended outcomes of the Programme are to:

  • increase employment in regions by providing work for locals and/or farmers and farm labourers/staff/contractors whose employment opportunities have been affected by drought
  • improve levels of economic activity in regions
  • increase productivity in regions
  • enable better retention of businesses, services and facilities.

Please contact Council with any questions.
