General Grant Information


When Council Auspices a Grant

Before deciding to auspice a grant application on behalf of a community organisation, Council will consider the project's benefit to the community, financial risk and alignment to the Council Plan and other plans such as community plans. Council is under no obligation to auspice a grant.  If Council decides to auspice a grant on your organisation's behalf, Council will have ultimate responsibility for grant management and a number of key steps need to occur.  Refer to the Horsham Rural City Council Grant Resource Kit(PDF, 189KB) for further information.
