The Community Grants Program is a wonderful initiative which enables Council to provide support to community and sporting groups.

Due to the growing demand for Council support, the program has been reviewed and updated to make it an even more equitable process for everyone.

Council will be heavily supporting the community to take advantage of the Community Grants Program through a series of workshops and one-on-one sessions can also be arranged with Council’s Community Development Manager to discuss the application process.

Groups will be able to apply for funding under three separate rounds during:

  • 3 June to 30 June 2019
  • 30 September to 27 October 2019
  • 3 February to 1 March 2020

Once the grant round has closed:

  • The Internal grant assessment panel will meet for assessment
  • The Decision will go to Council meeting for endorsement
  • Applicants will be notified after the Council meeting

All community and sporting groups wishing to apply for the Community Grants Program must ensure their application is submitted within the ‘round dates’. Applications submitted outside of the ‘round dates’ will not be accepted.
