The Community Grants Funding Scheme works towards building and enhancing social wellbeing within our local communities. The Shire welcomes submissions from individuals, community groups, not-for-profit, and commercial organisations that are seeking out support for projects, activities and events that address the needs of our people. If you want to explore more options or see other opportunities that you may be eligible, outside of the Shire's grants, you can use the Shire Grant Finder below!

There are opportunities available throughout the year that you, your group, or your organisation may be eligible to apply for. Check out the opportunities below!
