Community Sponsorships

Our Community Sponsorships Program supports longer term relationships with community groups and organisations who work to enhance the social, cultural and environmental experience of local residents.

Community organisations can apply for up to three years of funding for programs of work that deliver on outcomes from the Council Plan, from $1,000 to $10,000 per year. They run over the term of the Council Plan, and will re-open in 2025
