Last month, the council launched the 2021/22 Wingecarribee Community Assistance Scheme.
Under this year's scheme the council will again distribute up to $120,000 to assist local not-for-profit organisations across the shire.
The scheme aims to encourage and increase participation and support initiatives that promote partnerships within our Highlands community.

Grants and donations can be sought to fund programs, equipment or capital works which aim to establish, improve or enhance cultural, sporting, welfare, health promotion, community development or leisure services.
This scheme is one of the major annual initiatives of council's Community Development team and I urge any local not-for-profit groups in need of financial assistance to apply before the closing date.
Last year more than 80 projects from local sports clubs, churches, charities and community centres shared in the funding.
Under this year's scheme two types of funding are available, donations up to $600 and grants up to $7,000.
All applications must be submitted online by 4pm on Wednesday, March 31.
To view the guidelines and access this year's online application forms visit the council's website at www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/Community/Grants-Funding-Opportunities#section-1.
For further information or assistance in filling out an online application, contact our Coordinator of Community Development on phone 4868 0761 or via email at email@example.com.
