CWA branch receives grant for internet and television

The Country Women's Association Umina Beach branch has received a Council grant of $3988 for internet connection, a television and speakers.

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said the recent funding awarded through the Community Support Grant Program reflects Council's commitment to work within our communities to connect people, build capacity and create local solutions and initiatives.

Eight applicants were successful, sharing a funding pool of $31,188.61.

However, an application from the Lions Club of Woy Woy to cover the costs of council fees for its car boot sale and market in Dunban Rd was unsuccessful.

In a report prepared for the September 14 Council meeting, Community Planning and Funding team leader Mr Stuart Slough said the application was not recommended for funding "as the application is not suited to this grant program".

He recommended the applicant "liaise with Council Grants Officers and identify more suitable grant programs".

Mr Slough said: "Council's grant programs are provided to support the community to deliver quality programs, projects or events that build connections, celebrate our local community, that align with the One-Central Coast Community Strategic Plan and build capacity across the entire Central Coast community.

"The Community Support Grant Program is provided to support the community to deliver activities which require a small amount of funding and/or in-kind support."

He said the program provided support for activities that required "in-kind support through the provision of subsidised access to Council services" and "financial assistance for community activities that require a smaller amount of support".

Mr Slough recommended the CWA grant as "community benefit is demonstrated and all required information is provided".
