Council’s Community Grants Program – October 2018

12 Oct

Council is again opening its Community Grant Programs. The Grant Programs include the Community Events Sponsorship Fund, the Community Support Fund and the Creative Placemaking Fund. The Funds will be open from Monday 1 October until Wednesday 31 October. You can access the Guidelines and application forms from Council’s website at



Please note: The Guidelines have changed since last financial year so please make sure you read them and understand the eligibility in terms of your projects/events.  Unfortunately there was one or two in the last round ineligible because they didn’t meet the criteria.




Please also note: Council’s Environmental Levy Fund will also be opening in the next 2 or 3 weeks. I will provide more information once the Fund opens.




If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email or give me a call.
