Grant Program Overview:The grant program is organised on a financial year basis and is a competitive process. Each grant stream will be available twice in a financial year, subject to availability of funds. The outcome of each funding round will reflect the number and value of requests received. The grants aim to support the sustainability and independence of community groups.
Please refer to the Grant Guidelines for further information about your group's eligibility and what the grant will fund.
All community groups are encouraged to discuss their ideas and options with the Grants Advisor, especially those seeking funds for the first time. See contact details below.
Additional information required when applying for a grant. If your group DOES NOT have an Australian Business Number (ABN) you need to also complete the "Statement by Supplier" Form.
