Junee announced as partner community for IRCF
Junee was announced as a partner community for the IRCF program, along with Leeton and Nambucca Valley, following the successful Expression of Interest from Junee.
Five communities in NSW were selected to participate in the Start-Up grant round of the IRCF program. Following the successful implementation of these projects, the communities were invited to submit an Expression of Interest to continue on with the IRCF program.
Following this Expression of Interest, the community of Junee was announced as a partner community in January 2020. As a partner community, not-for-profit organisations in Junee will have access to up to $950,000 in grants over four years. The funding will support whatever the community groups collectively identify they need most to build their organisational capacity, capability and resilience.
Each of the three communities were chosen for their concentration of great local organisations, evident insight into what they need to address local issues and seize opportunities, and commitment to creating sustainable, vibrant futures.
