Annual Grants Program

Each year, Council invites community organisations, groups and in some categories, individuals, in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area to make an application for funding as part of Council's Annual Grants Program. $186,000 will be available for the Annual Grants Program 2018-19 to help support our local communities.

The current round of the Annual Grants Program is now closed.

Information for 2018-19 Annual Grants Program successful recipients

In order for Wagga Wagga City Council to pay your organisation any grant awarded, it is a requirement that an invoice or tax invoice is submitted. The Australian Taxation Office can be contacted for further advice regarding your tax status on 132 866 or via their website www.ato.gov.au.

The following outlines what needs to be considered when completing either an invoice or tax invoice:

If your organisation has an Australian Business Number (ABN) and is registered for GST:
If your organisation has an ABN and is registered for GST you will need to provide a Tax Invoice and include GST on top of the amount of grant allocated. For example - if your grant is for $3000 then your tax invoice would be for $3000 plus $300 GST, totalling $3300. Please quote your ABN on the tax invoice.

If your organisation has an ABN but is not registered for GST:
If your organisation has an ABN but not registered for GST you will need to provide an Invoice for the grant amount (excluding GST), quoting your ABN.

If your organisation does not have an ABN and is not registered for GST
If your organisation does not have an ABN you will need to provide an Invoice for the grant amount (excluding GST) and a completed Statement by Supplier form.

If your application was Auspiced by a Legally Incorporated Entity:

The legally incorporated entity will be responsible for submitting an invoice on your behalf. It is then their responsibility to transfer the grant to you. You will need to advise your auspicing body that you were successful in your application and refer them to this website for payment information.


***Please note the invoice/tax invoice must be in the name of your organisation - not in the name of the supplier of the goods/services you are purchasing. It will be your responsibility to manage the grant funds and make payment to any suppliers that may be used.
