Our Grants

The Shire's Community Grant Program aims to support the sustainability and independence of local community groups and sporting clubs.  

Please refer to the Grant Guidelines for further information about your group's eligibility and what the grant will fund. All groups are encouraged to discuss their ideas and options with the Community Capacity Building Officer, especially those seeking funds for the first time.

In addition to the Community Grants Program, the Shire also administers a Youth Engagement Partnership Fund which provides a maximum of $10,000 funding to community groups delivering initiatives that are aligned to the Shire's Youth Services Model.

In 2020-2021 the Shire will offer funding for COVID-19 related programs/activities through the Recover Together – COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund.
