Applicants can apply for funding via three streams:
Applicants through the Event and Support streams can apply for up to $5,000 per application to support community events/activities/programs.
Applicants through the Major Project stream can apply for funding of between $10,000 and $125,000 to develop infrastructure projects on non-Council owned land/properties.
To prepare your application, it is highly recommended that you read the funding guidelines. The guidelines are available now to assist with understanding what is required as part of any potential application.
To support interested applicants, Council hosted a Community Grants Forum online to coincide with the opening of the 2021 Community Grants Program. This forum was designed to support our community to better understand the process of applying for a Community Grant, as well as support you to feel more confident in sourcing and applying for grants from a range of organisations.
