The Sponsorships and Contributions Program provides the opportunity for locally-based groups and organisations to support initiatives that enable community groups and organisations to provide opportunities for growth, progress, sustainability, and participation within the Northern Grampians Shire.
Northern Grampians Shire Council Grants are a fantastic resource for our community and a great way to fund your project however funds are limited and grant focus areas may not be suitable to your needs. Looking for funding opportunities outside of NGSC can be time-consuming and challenging however we have made it a whole lot easier.
