The Shire's Community Grant Program is organised on a financial year basis and is a competitive process. 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 and Volunteers Advisor, especially those seeking funds for the first time.
