Community Sponsorship Program Round 3 2012/2013

Round 3 of the program is currently open and applications will be received until the close of business, Friday 1 March 2013.

The program covers any Hawkesbury based community organisation, business or individual wanting to undertake activities that address the needs of the community as identified in Council’s adopted strategic, community, cultural and other plans. It also covers individuals who are representing the Hawkesbury at a state, national and international sporting competition or cultural event.

  • Financial - in terms of direct funding
  • Human - in terms of advice, skill and expertise of Council staff
  • Material - in terms of goods and services provided directly by Council as an ‘in-kind’ contribution
