Longreach Regional Council takes great pride in supporting individuals and community organisations, delivering projects and events within the Council area that contribute to building community and economic capacity.
Council offers assistance to eligible individuals and organisations through three community funding streams. Application packs and policies will guide you through the process and help you determine which to apply for.
Community Donations Program
Community Donations are for in-kind services from Council or direct funding of up to $5,000 for local groups and associations planning events in the region.
The Mayoral Donation Program supports community individuals, organisations, and/or clubs that have been selected to pursue achievements in their chosen area of expertise; this may include, but is not limited to significant sports and recreation, arts, cultural and academic endeavours.
Applications must be received by close of business on the first Friday of the month for consideration at that month’s ordinary meeting of Council.
Our sponsorship program aims to provide a transparent, equitable, and accountable framework for sponsorship of groups, organisations, or individuals seeking to deliver projects, activities, or events that:
• Benefit the Longreach region communities and meet Council’s strategic objectives;
• Further develop the range of existing events and activities in-region to maximise the economic and social benefits;
• Are otherwise considered strategically important, with a focus on the development of long term sustainable partnerships; and
• Facilitate commercial activity and the generation of loyalty and goodwill, by extension of industry standards and commercial sponsorship initiatives, under appropriate accountability conditions.
