Community grants are now closed and will open again later in the year.

Council's community grants program consists of one-off financial grants and funding for community groups and not-for-profit organisations.

Grants are provided for activities, programs, events and initiatives that provide clear benefits for our community. 

Community groups and organisations can apply for funding to improve wellbeing, encourage inclusion, celebrate cultural diversity, engage in the arts and improve the environment.


Review the below Community Grants Policy and Guidelines to check your eligibility.

Review an example application form and tips sheet. This is a sample application only and examples of successful applications form.
