What are the COGS public meetings for?
Public meetings are held before the COGS funding round opens each year. Public meetings are an opportunity for local people and community organisations to help set the outcomes for COGS funding in their local area and to meet the local committee that makes the decisions on their COGS grant requests. Community groups and organisations are encouraged to attend.
Community participation in public meetings helps ensure COGS decision-making is community-driven and supports a range of community needs.
