Many bushfire recovery grants, thanks to the likes of Shoalhaven City Council and other agencies, are available for local residents and groups.
However, applying for these grants can be off putting and difficult if you have never applied for a grant before.
Shoalhaven City Council, to help people and make the process easier, is staging a Grant Writing Clinic.
People, at the clinic, learn more about the Bushfire Recovery Grants program and how to apply.
A clinic will be held at the Shoalhaven Recovery Hub Ulladulla Civic Centre (The Lounge) 81B Princes Highway, Ulladulla Thursday June 17 10.30AM-12.30PM
