You should be able to show that you can successfully manage and administer your proposal and be able to provide Council with information about its outcome and the benefits provided.


What is eligible?

  • Community proposals that can demonstrate the following:
  • A need for the proposal in the Derwent Valley community.
  • A high level of community participation in the project/proposal.
  • Significant benefit to the Derwent Valley community
