The Community Grants Program is the Shire’s principal community investment program. Through this program, Council contributes to community wellbeing by:

  • Supporting and stimulating diverse and dynamic projects, programs, events and activities;
  • Encouraging collaboration through engagement and participation in the community;
  • Facilitating stronger, more sustainable and resilient communities;
  • Supporting the maintenance and upgrade of community facilities.
  • Encouraging projects and events benefiting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The purpose of the Shire’s Community Grants Program is to develop and actively support community organisations and individuals who positively contribute to community wellbeing and the cultural life of the region.

The Annual Community Grant will cover the costs of up to 50% of projects $3,000 and over. This category is for:

  • The development of the community through projects or events.
  • Supports capital upgrades, improvements and development of community services and facilities.
  • To provide support and incentives for new and developing local and regional events.
