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 2018/2019 financial year to be eligible to apply for a grant.
Applications will be received up until 4pm Friday 31 August 2018. Applications will be referred for consideration to Bathurst Regional Access Committee. Successful projects must be completed by Friday 24 May 2019.
