Community Development Grants

Is your community group or club planning to carry out a project and require grant funding? For the remainder of the financial year (2019/20), the Community Development Grants program has reverted to a rolling grants process where grants will continue to be allocated whilst funding exists.

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).

Information about the grants including grant guidelines and assessment criteria is contained in the application form below.

Community groups are encouraged to make contact with the Community Development team prior to making an application.  Please be aware that if your group’s application is successful your project will need to be completed (including submitting an acquittal report) by 31 May 2020.

Please contact Council’s Community Development Officer, Emma Warner, on 8580 3000 or for further information.
