Community support grant program

Community support grants of up to $2,500 are available with grant rounds closing on March 1 and August 1 each year. Grant funds are limited in individual amounts and total funds available.

The community support grant program seeks to provide support for projects that:

  • demonstrate collaboration and partnerships between community organisations
  • encourage and assist community interaction and inclusiveness
  • foster indigenous, multicultural and inter-generational understanding and equity
  • support innovation, forward thinking and learning opportunities
  • upgrade facilities to meet standards, regulations and community expectations
  • meet changing community needs and/or increase facility usage

 Preference will be given to applications that:

  • facilitate deliverable outcomes for the community - that is, provide programs, facilities or capital works
  • demonstrate self-help, commitment and future sustainability
  • are identified within a strategic planning framework
  • are not duplicating existing projects, activities or events
