Community Development Grants

Community Development Grants

Renmark Paringa Council recognises and supports the major contribution that not for profit community groups provide to their local and wider communities.  Council provides the Community Development Grants Program, offering an annual total of $26,000 to support community projects, which aim to improve the quality of life of Renmark Paringa residents. 

Community Development Grants provide funding for community initiatives including projects that develop community capacity and/or leadership and capital works projects delivering community facilities improvement. The grants process is competitive and is based on the application received. 

Grants of up to $5,000 are available for eligible community groups.  Successful applicants need to show a high degree of self-help by providing significant contributions to the project (groups are required to provide dollar for dollar contribution - 50% of project cost).

Further information including grant guidelines and the assessment criteria fact sheet can be found in the application form (link below). 

The 2019/20 round is now open, with a closing date of 5pm, Monday 22 July 2019.  If your group has any questions about the application process, please contact Council’s Community Development Officer, Emma Warner, on 8580 3000 or
