Leeton Start Up Grants

As part of the IRCF program launch, Leeton Shire Council has received $60,000 to kickstart Leeton Connect. Leeton Connect is a newly formed collaboration of NFPs in Leeton who are working together to create efficiencies and strengthen the NFP sector.

This grant represents the start-up round of the program in Leeton, and is the first investment of the IRCF program. The grants will prepare the community for the next phase of the IRCF program.

The grants were open to any community group within Leeton, with organisations encouraged to collaborate to make the most of the limited funds available to them.

The Leeton Connect Project is outlined below.
