Business Assistance Scheme

West Wimmera Shire Council is committed to attracting new and expanding existing business and industry to the municipality. Council is willing to provide assistance to businesses in certain circumstances to commence or expand business operations within the shire.

Council can provide up to $15,000 to business through our business assistance scheme.  

To apply for funding, businesses will need to supply Council with a business plan detailing the nature of the business, a SWOT analysis, and an indication of sustainability. Businesses must also be able to show that they will be financially and environmentally sustainable and provide a long term benefit to the West Wimmera community.

Council can also provide support for businesses through rate concessions, permit reimbursement, and in-kind works or support to provide infrastructure.
