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.
All community groups are encouraged to discuss their ideas and options with the Community Development Advisor – Grants, especially those seeking funds for the first time. See contact details below.
