There is insufficient budget to fund all requests before this panel. Please use your rankings so that there is a clear difference between activities.
This way, we hope to fund A applications. Where budget permits, B and then C applications will be supported. Please apply the selection criteria as published when ranking applications. This ensures a fair and transparent process.

The activity may have a clearly defined target audience but will be in support of an inclusive, safe and vibrant community in the City of Canning e.g. a school festival promoted and open to the neighbourhood; a Christmas Carol event promoted to the wider community as well the members of the church organising the event.
