Community Grants

Our annual Community Grants Program supports community organisations wishing to present quality, innovative Shire-based activities, which enhance the social, cultural, environmental and economic development of the community. 

What types of things are funded through Community Grants?

There are four categories of Community Grants available through the program:

  • Community Development - to assist community groups with equipment and organisational planning
  • Community Events - to support community groups to run local community events
  • Cultural Development - eg Art Show
  • Cultural Acquisition - eg Art purchases
  • Initiatives that address social disadvantage

How do I apply?
