Grants - FAQs and Resources

  • The Shire provides community funding (through grants) to support our community.
  • We also offer Funding Finder - a database of grants and funding opportunities for businesses, community groups, not-for-profits and individuals. 

All Shire grants and funding programs are also listed on Funding Finder once open for applications. This makes Funding Finder a one stop shop for accessing grants and funding.

Investing in our community

Community funding is an investment in our Peninsula. It builds capacity and encourages community-led initiatives or partnerships that benefit the community.  The Shire's grants program is developed in line with the Community Investment Funding Policy.(PDF, 770KB) The policy outlines the ways the Shire creates and reviews its Grants Programs.
