The 2017-2018 Community Grants Program will open at 12.00noon on Friday, March 31, 2017 and will close at 4.00pm on Friday, 7 July 2017.
We have a great video that provides an overview of the Community Grants Program this year featuring some of our local community members.
The Community Grants Program is made up of three different grant streams, plus the William Pearson Bequest. All grants are subject to eligibility and will be assessed at the time of submission.
Detailed information and criteria required for each grant is available in the Community Grants Guidelines document.
It is essential to check the details of the grant in the Community Grant Guidelines before you submit your application.

This grant matches the in-kind and cash contribution from community groups, to enable a wide range of projects and purchases for community benefit, including but not limited to minor capital purchases (i.e. furniture, equipment etc), improvements to community facilities, project costs (i.e. printing, facility hire, consumables). Seed (leverage) funding for applications to other funders can also be sought from the Community Matching Grant.
