How are grant applications assessed?

Applications for community grants are assessed according to their category. Projects which focus on strengthening Campaspe’s communities are considered favourably. Other selection criteria include:

  • Economic benefit – Will the project increase retail, industry and accommodation, enhancement of economic base, or funds spent locally?
  • Project sustainability - If the project is ongoing, is it likely to generate its own funds for future years?   
  • Community / social benefit - Does the project involve local community members? Does it bring visitors to Campaspe? Or does it enrich the shire?
  • Partnership - Contribution by group or others to the project either cash and / or in-kind, including project partnership participation (not just financial contribution).
