Small Grants Program

Funding for local community organisations.


Each year, funding is available to not-for-profit organisations to provide services to our local residents.

Each year, funding opens around mid-Feb and closes early March.

Funding amounts are generally in the range of $500-$2000, and should be seen as a contribution rather than a commitment to fund the entire service.


Applications for 2020-21 Funding have now closed.

Successful applications will be announced in July 2020.
