A certain percentage of funds raised by the stall fees has been put aside to assist the broader Burrawang community in recognition of the whole community effort that goes into holding the markets.
WHAT SORT OF THINGS WILL THE GRANT SUPPORT?
The grant will consider all requests until the funds are dispensed.

The only stipulation is that grant applicants must be local to Burrawang and Wildes Meadow.

The Burrawang Easter Market Association committee will assess all applications and decide on funding as required.
