Through its Community Grants program, the Shire supports projects, programs and services that identify a community need and contributes to the building of stronger and more creative communities.

Creative Community Grants: Assist community groups and non-profits groups interested in initiating arts and cultural activities and programs with public outcomes.

Community Placemaking Grants: Support community led initiatives that align to the placemaking criteria and Council’s strategic goals.

Community Support Grants: Assist not-for-profit community groups by providing funding for a wide range of projects that contribute to improving the health and wellbeing of the community.

Two categories will remain open for the year until funds are expended, including:

Flexi Grants opened Monday 1 July and remain open for the year until funds are expended: Provide an opportunity for community groups needing a small amount of funding to start a new project, purchase small equipment, train volunteers or host a small community activity.
