Council has been fortunate to receive funding from the Federal Government’s Disaster Recovery and Resilience Program in response to the devastating bush fires from last season.
It’s worth it for your business.

As part of a broader program of work, Council is looking to support projects and activities that plan for, respond to and build resilience with regards to bush fires and other natural disasters through a series of grant programs.
Information drop-in sessions will take place to help inform the community of the grant programs, what they may be able to apply for and how to apply.
The bush fires that occurred over the last spring/summer season impacted on the whole Shire in one way or another and we are still seeing the effects of it.
This, along with the current pandemic, has seen the Shire have to contend with a lot. This funding will help support our community in preparing for this bush fire season and build a stronger more resilient community.
Council will offer three grant streams that will be open to businesses, individuals and community organisations.
Anyone interested in applying is strongly encouraged to attend a community information session:
- Dorrigo Community Hall Monday 7 September 11.00am to 1.00pm
- Thora Hall Monday 7 September 2.00pm to 4.00pm
- Urunga Literary Hall Monday 14 September 9.30am to 11.30am
- Mylestom Hall Monday 14 September 12.30pm to 2.30pm
- Bellingen Citizens Centre Wednesday 16 September 10.00am to 12.00pm
