Minor Grants Program

The aim of the Minor Grants Program is to develop, strengthen and enhance the capacity of not for profit organisations to provide projects that compliment and improve services and activities of benefit to the community. Council reserves the right from year to year to identify priority areas for funding consistent with the strategic directions and policies endorsed by Council.

Grants must be of benefit to the general community and take the form of project funding.

Council will consider allocating funds in each annual budget and will advertise for grants twice annually, in April and September. However, Minor Grants will only be available while such funds set aside in Council’s annual budget for this purpose remains unexpended.

Please refer to Council’s Community Grants Guidelines for eligibility, assessment criteria and other requirements.

Grant rounds close on the first Tuesday of May and September each year.
