Councillors' Discretionary Funds

The Councillors' Discretionary Fund provides Council with the ability to approve small discretionary grants to community members and groups in response to requests which are received from time to time.

The program recognises small activities and events that deserve support from Council. These programs may arise on an ad hoc basis which makes them ineligible for other funding programs or they do not coincide with the timing of the annual Community Grants Program.
