Bathurst Regional Council in partnership with the Bathurst Regional Access Committee provides grants to assist small businesses and not-for-profit organisations in the local area to improve access for all members of the community.
Businesses and not-for-profit organisations within the Bathurst region may apply for funding of either 50% of project costs, or up to a maximum of $5,000 on a dollar for dollar basis.
In the past, funds have been awarded to complete paths, build access ramps, install automatic doors and build or modify accessible toilets.
Projects must be completed within the current 2020/2021 financial year to be eligible to apply for a grant.
Applications close Friday 2 October 2020. Applications will be referred to Bathurst Regional Access Committee for comment and recommendations.
Successful projects for 2020/2021 must be completed by Friday 21 May 2021.
