TSC Local Assistance fund


The Local Access Assistance Fund assists owners and occupiers of buildings accessed by the public with funding to improve access for those with disabilities and reduced mobility.

The fund was established by the Temora Shire Council Access and Equity Committee and is financed as part of the allocation in Council’s yearly budget.

There is $10,000 available every financial year for the fund. The maximum level of funding for each application is $2,000 with the applicant to provide at least matched funding.

Projects might involve the repair, maintenance, or construction of improved access in strict accordance with the Accessible Standards Legislation, National Construction Code, and relevant Australian Standards.

The purpose of the fund is to assist owners and occupiers of buildings, such as shops and services, to improve the access to their business through permanent infrastructure like ramps and widening entrances.

Once approved, the applicant has twelve months to complete the project.
