Leeton announced as partner community for IRCF
Leeton was announced as a partner community for the IRCF program in January 202, along with Junee and Nambucca Valley, following a successful Expression of Interest from the community.
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 the successful Start-Up grant round and Expression of Interest, the community of Leeton was announced as a partner community for the next four years. As a partner community, not-for-profit organisations in Leeton 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.
