Southern Grampians Shire Council Mayor David Robertson said Council always looks forward to opening of the grants.

“It’s always a great time of year to see the grant ideas that our community put forward,” said Cr Robertson.

“We know that it can be daunting to put together an application, so we are helping to remove some of those barriers by having our Community Development Officers available across the Shire to provide assistance.

“If your community group has an idea that needs financial assistance, but you just aren’t sure what the grants process involves, please get in touch with us and head along to one of our community sessions,” concluded Cr Robertson.

Community Partnership Grants offer a broad range of categories including Community Infrastructure, Arts and Cultural Development, Community Strengthening, Tourism and Events, Environmental Sustainability, and Heritage.

Council’s Community Partnership Grants program offers eligible community groups to access up to $15,000 per financial year for initiatives, events and projects that directly benefit the Southern Grampians Shire.

Eligibility criteria and information on how to apply, including the full guidelines and application form (once open) are available on Council’s grants page or by contacting Customer Service on 5573 0444.

*Applications open Monday 1 July 2024 and close 4:00pm Wednesday 31 July 2024.
