Financial Assistance and Sponsorship Program
Our Financial Assistance and Sponsorship Program/ Policy is currently under review.
Council will advise the community once the new policy has been released.
Hilltops Council twice a year calls for applications from community organisations who are seeking financial assistance or sponsorship from Council.
Our annual Financial Assistance and Sponorship program provides funding to eligible community groups and organisations with the aim to maximise community connections, and improve the function and sustainability of community projects/events and facilities.
They are run each year to provide financial assistance to organisations to help deliver local initiatives that make a positive contribution to our community.
All applications and supporting information must be submitted to Council on the prescribed forms which are available below and at Council offices, and be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by the designated closing time and date to be considered.
When submitting an application please supply as much information as possible so that Council is able to assess your application to its full potential.
