Ensuring funding projects

Cr Whelan said, "One of the eligibility requirements for this Program requires that young people are actively involved in the design, development and implementation of the project. This means that this funding will go towards projects that directly benefit Bass Coast youth."

The assessment panel will be made up of two members of Council's Youth Advisory Council, as well as Council Officers. "The Youth Advisory Council members will work to ensure the funding will go towards projects that will be of greatest benefit to young people in Bass Coast," Cr Whelan concluded.
