Funding and Grants

Financial assistance for community organisations can be obtained from a number of sources to assist with a range of requirements, from facility upgrades to program development.

The City's main funding program for community groups is the Community Facility Contribution Program. This provides financial contributions for the purposes of carrying out maintenance, renewal or capital works (improvements) to community facilities on Council controlled land that support community, sport, recreational and educational activities.

To receive a Community Facility Contribution, organisations and projects for which the funding is sought must meet eligibility criteria and go through an assessment process.

Click here and refer to Attachment C of the Community Grants Policy for the program procedure.

To receive a letter of support for a grant application, items within the Determination Checklist are required.
