Community Grants Program 2019/20

Share this:

The Golden Plains Shire Community Grants program is offered to assist not-for-profit community organisations in providing opportunities that benefit the wider Golden Plains community.

We are looking for projects that contribute to an inclusive, diverse, healthy and socially connected community.

In particular, our key priorities are to support projects that can demonstrate that they aim to:

  • Increase opportunities for particular population groups - young people, older adults, people with disabilities
  • Improve communities' access to information about local and regional services, programs and events
  • Improve community facilities
  • Increase the range of community, recreation, sport, arts, heritage or cultural activities
  • Protect and enhance the natural environment

For information on funding details, organisation eligibility and project eligibility please read the Community grant guidelines
