Community Grants Program


The Community Grants Program supports initiatives that deliver a range of social and economic benefits to communities across the Federation Council area.

The program provides a more streamlined approach to supporting local community groups, organisations and clubs with delivering community projects and events.  

Two rounds are facilitated each year, with a total amount of $60,000 available to fund one-off projects through one of the nine focus categories:

  • Arts And Culture;
  • Events & Tourism;
  • Community Work and Welfare;
  • Skill Development and Learning;
  • Health Promotion;
  • Accessibility and Inclusion;
  • Young People;
  • Senior Residence; and
  • Children and Families.

Round Two of the 2022/2023 Community Grants Program will open on Monday 6 February, 2023 and will close on Friday 17 March, 2023.
