Business and Community Recovery Grants
The Business and Community Recovery Grants Program has been established to provide financial support to businesses and community organisations within the Rural City of Wangaratta who have experienced disruption and hardship due to the devastating bushfires of January 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic.
At Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 28th July 2020, Council supported the Business and Community Recovery Grants Program by allocating $372,876 for business and community support grants.
The Business and Community Recovery Grants Program is not seeking to replicate or replace Council’s Community Grants Program, Tourism Event Funding Program or existing State and Federal government packages, but to compliment these packages and identify gaps in the existing support programs.
