COVID-19 Impacts on Council Grants 2019/20 and 2020/21

There are a number of current Council Grant recipients with projects that are now unable to be completed in the 2019 - 2020 year given restrictions in place for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Council staff are in the process of contacting these grant recipients to provide options on how to manage this change, including timeline extensions or enabling minor changes to scope where possible.

Staff are taking actions to prepare for how Council may support the wellbeing of our community both now and into the future. A part of this is the development of a social impact response to help our community in the recovery phase of the pandemic to reconnect and rebuild. In this context staff are considering how to refocus the 2020 - 2021 Council Grants program to better respond to direct impacts of COVID-19 on our community and to activate our communities and town centres when life resumes some degree of normality.

This change means that the scheduled April 2020 opening of the 2020 - 2021 Council Grants program will be postponed to a later date, to be determined.

If you need to acquit a 2019-2020 grant or earlier year, please see the document library for acquittal form.

For more information call Council on 4988 0255 or contact pscgrants@portstephens.nsw.gov.au
