The Rochdale Township Funds were designed to be allocated to projects that benefit the Township’s communities and environment and which realise the

Members of the Rochdale Township Action and Resource Sub-Committee were requested to note the Principal Townships Officer’s assessment of the proposed projects to be considered for funding against the criteria of eligibility for the Rochdale Township Fund, priorities of the Township and any specific risks identified.
