Grants of $1,000 or more require a Completion Report with the following documentation attached and forwarded to Council:
- Substantiation of your group’s expenditure on the project in accordance with the grant application (for example, a copy of a supplier’s invoice to your organisation)
- An invoice from your organisation to Horsham Rural City Council requesting payment of the grant. Your organisation’s invoice should not include GST as the contribution is considered a donation under GST law
