Council Community Grants


Community Grants

Council receives many requests for financial assistance from community groups and organisations. Council’s Community Grants Program is intended to provide a basis for allocating its funds in an effective and equitable manner, based on the individual merits of each request, to address priority community needs. The aim of these grants is to encourage, develop and support local projects of a community, cultural, environmental, recreational or sporting nature which demonstrate broad-based benefit to all the residents of the district.

Grants that address objectives of Councils Strategic Plan will be looked upon favourably.

Grants are divided into the following two categories:

Category 1 –   Grants greater than $1,000 and less than $4,000

Category 2 – Grants less than $1,000

The organisation submitting the application must be a not-for-profit and non- government entity.

The 2017/2018 grant round has now closed. Please check back on our website in December 2018 for 2018/2019 application information.
