Can your not-for-profit group make our community more active, vibrant, inclusive, resilient and creative?

Minor Grants support not-for-profit organisations to deliver one-off projects, events and activities with broad community benefit. 

The Community Grants Program, including Minor Grants, was reviewed in 2021. A variety of updates, to reduce the program's complexity have been implemented. Always check the Guidelines for eligibility and priorities before applying. 

Please note: if applying for community event funding, please apply under the category best aligned with your event's purpose. If applying for a Christmas, New Year (December 31-January 1), Australia Day, ANZAC Day or Remembrance Day event, please see council's new Festive and Commemorative Events Grants.
