COVID-19 and funding and delivery issues

AlburyCity recognises that COVID-19 is continuing to impact the planning and delivery of programs/projects to the community.  When Community and Cultural grants are awarded to recipients it is with the intent that programs/projects will be delivered within the financial year. If groups and individuals are having difficulty fulfilling this requirement due to COVID-19, we will work with you to determine the best approach and outcome.

Extensions are reviewed on an individual basis and may be granted or other solutions developed.
