Community Grants

Our Community Grants Program supports programs and projects that will develop and enhance the social, cultural and environmental experience of local residents.

This year we’ve combined our Major and Minor Grants Program into one round of grants!


Community groups and organisations can apply for $1000 up to $10,000 to deliver programs and projects that meet the following objectives:

  • Encouraging arts, cultural and heritage experiences in our community
  • Accessible and equitable services, spaces and programs
  • Increased community safety and well-being
  • Encouraging healthy behaviours and lifestyles
  • Supporting a resilient community

The Community Grants Program will open on Friday 16 July 2021 and close at 4pm on Friday 1 October 2021.
