A range of new grants funding and sponsorship programs are available to support your local project, event or business idea.

Council has committed to the following grant programs for the current financial year to encourage local participation, economic vibrancy and wellbeing:

  • Stronger Partnerships
  • Community Grants
  • Business Support
  • Events Grants
  • Minor Grants
  • Sponsorship and Contributions

Only one application per organisation is permitted per financial year across all of the streams.

Please contact the Community Development Team to discuss your idea prior to completing an application and to make sure you select the most suitable funding stream.
