COVID-19 and funding and delivery issues

AlburyCity recognises that COVID-19 makes it extremely hard to plan and deliver 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 trouble to fulfill this requirement because of COVID-19, we will work with you to determine the best approach and outcome.


Extensions may be granted and other solutions developed.
