Community Grants Program

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.  The Community Grants program opens in April and closes in June each year.

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

Minor Grants are available to Halls and Reserves Committees of Management to assist with equipment purchase and facility repairs.
