Council’s Grants Program is a practical way in which Council works with individuals, groups and not-for profit organisations to make a positive impact in the City.

The Community Grants program supports three broad areas:

  • Community development activities that support local communities to progress their health and well-being through arts and culture, community development, heritage and history and sports and recreation:
  • Economic prosperity activities such as festivals and events, that will attract tourists and visitors to the City; and
  • Environmental sustainability activities, which involve people in caring for the environment, heritage projects, and promoting sustainable living.

Community Support Grants are one of three grant program areas available to the community and consist of a bi-annual grant of up to $1,500 for groups and not-for-profit organisations.
