Community Grants Program

The Community Grants Program enables community groups to further meet the needs of the wider community in a partnership relationship with Council.

Grants are available to community groups for projects that provide outcomes for the benefit of the community. Examples include new community programs and events, purchase of equipment and facility improvement projects.

Funding is provided on a dollar for dollar basis with the contribution from the community provided in-kind or by cash. All applications must meet Council's criteria.
