Special Requests Community Grants - for applications from $5000.00 - $20,000.00 aimed at supporting community groups with large capital projects, events, projects etc. The purpose of the grant is not to fund operating costs.

Requests for operational funding, works-in-kind or reimbursement for expenses prior to the 2019/2020 financial year will no longer be accepted under the guidelines. Furthermore, this is now the only pathway to request Council contribution for partnership funding for any project throughout the year. Please consider all events, projects or infrastructure your community group is planning for the 2019/20 year carefully, as applications will only be open once per year.
