In 2020-2021 the Shire will offer funding for COVID-19 related programs/activities through the Recover Together – COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund.
Through delivery of the Fund, the Shire will work in partnership with community groups and local business and industry to deliver a range of programs and initiatives to assist in recovery, and to build community resilience and connectedness.
