The purpose of the Panel is to add value to the assessment process of our Community Grants Program through:

  • a shared understanding of community development principles
  • provision of advice
  • exchange of ideas 
  • and by ensuring broad and diverse community representation in the award of community grants. 

In addition, the Panel will ensure that the allocation of funding aligns with Council strategies, program guidelines and other key priorities.
