The Community Grants Program is offered twice a year around February and September. Applications for 2019/2020 Round 2 open Monday 3 February 2020 and close midnight Tuesday 10 March 2020.

The Environmental Grant Program is a new initiative and will be run once a year. Applications for the 2019/2020 round opens Monday 3 February 2020 and closes midnight Tuesday 10 March 2020.
The purpose of this program is to offer financial assistance to not for profit community, environmental, service groups and associations that provide benefit to the local and regional environment. The intention of these grants is to consistently manager the large number of requests for funding that Council receives. Funds are not provided on a recurrent basis and funding success does not guarantee Council contributions in future years.
