New Community Grants

Did you know that Council has introduced two new community grant categories?

Do you run an event or program that focuses on supporting disadvantaged or vulnerable members of the community? Charitable Purposes Grants ($2,000 ) will be awarded annually in each Ward. Applications are now open and will close on 1 November 2018. Groups that run on-going programs or annual events will be considered.

Do you run programs for children aged 8 to 12 years? Children’s Programs Grants will be available in ten $1,000 grants, along with four $500 “Quick Response” grants that will be administered using our Quick Response Youth Grant process. Applications from schools will be considered.

Don’t forget, we still have our existing grant categories, Active & Engaged Communities, Quality Community Infrastructure, Sustainable Environment, Reconciliation Support and White Ribbon & Family Violence Action Initiatives.
