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.

Applications to the Business and Community Recovery Grants Program are NOW CLOSED.

Thank you to all businesses and community organisations who have taken the time to apply. Grant applications are currently being assessed and successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified in the week beginning Monday 12th October 2020.

Successful applicants will be required to sign a funding agreement and grant payments will commence upon signing and returning this agreement.

Projects are to be completed by 30 June 2021.

Please email recovery@wangaratta.vic.gov.au if you have any queries regarding the program or your application.
