We offer a Community Grants Program to support and work with individuals, groups and not-for-profit organisations that make a positive impact in our city.
The community grants program supports three broad areas:
- Community development activities that support local communities to progress their health and wellbeing through arts and culture, community development, heritage and history, sports and recreation:
- Economic prosperity activities such as festivals and events, that will attract tourists and visitors to our city; and
- Environmental sustainability activities, which involve people in caring for the environment, heritage projects, and promoting sustainable living.
We offer three types of grants – quick response grants, community support grants, and partnership grants.
The tiered approach means that we can be even more responsive in helping our community.
If eligible, you are welcome to take the opportunity to apply for funds and work with us to fulfill our vision for Clarence; a place of diverse communities working together for a vibrant, prosperous and sustainable city.
More information about the types of grants available can be found below.
