Council supports community groups for a variety of events, amenities and services through our community funding scheme.

We want to hear from not-for-profit community organisations who are working to benefit our communities of place, of people and of interest.

If you need support with a project or activity that is helping to create a vibrant, attractive and thriving District, the following Funds may assist you.

Community Fund (Round 1, 2018-19)

This Fund is available for a wide variety of projects and events including festivals, workshops, working bees, facility improvements and minor capital purchases. For grants up to $10,000. Closes 3 September 2018.

Performing Arts Fund

This Fund is to support major performing arts events in our District. We want to encourage performing artists to our District and support performances and events that may not otherwise occur, for the benefit of the wider community. For grants up to $5,000. Closes 3 September 2018.

Creative Communities Scheme (Round 1, 2018-19)
