  • fund a local economic development broker to support local businesses to leverage and grow economic development opportunities
  • review our community partnerships and community grants programme to ensure the community is empowered to deliver local outcomes e.g. support rural hall committees to develop five-year operational plans and three-year funding agreements with local social service agencies
  • also review the event and ecological partnership funding approach.
