Burdekin Shire Council has a policy of providing revenue financial assistance (interest free loans) to sporting bodies and community organisations located on Council owned or controlled land (reserves).
The assistance is in respect of structural improvements, such as Clubhouse construction and associated fixtures. No assistance is provided in relation to contents or items of a non-structural nature. Maintenance, minor repairs or moveable items will not be funded. All monetary assistance must be repaid to the Council over an agreed period of time.
To be eligible, all applicants must provide documentary proof that a funding application has been submitted to the State Government in respect of the proposed structural improvements.
There is no guarantee that all applications will be approved, either in total or in part, depending on the number and type of applications received.
Applications are invited by public advertisement around August each year.
