Applications can only be submitted online and cannot be made in person or mailed. 

In under 300 words detail the intiative your organisation will use the funds for, including:

  • How the initiative will address the needs of the local community. For example, purchasing a defibrillator, upgrading sewing machine equipment or building a new vegetable garden.
  • How the initiative will be effectively delivered. This may include which suppliers you will use, who will be responsible for managing the project and any other key details.
  • How the initiative represents good value for money. This may include advising of research done to ensure the initiative is viable and relevant to those it’s intended for and that goods and services procured are competitively priced. 

The more specific and more information you can provide, the better! Make sure you include the correct email and mobile phone for someone in the organisation so we can reach you if you are successful!

You can apply for whatever amount your organisation’s project requires, with the maximum grant amount being $10,000. 

It’s important that the amount you apply for is justified in your application. 

If you’ve been successful, you will receive an email with an invitation to our official Community Grants ceremony where you will receive your funding. You will also be required to submit a financial acquittal once your funds have been spent. 

We try to give as much as we can to as many people as we can. Every application is presented to the Board and assessed thoroughly. If you have applied in the past and you didn’t receive a grant, please don’t let this deter you. Apply again this year! 

Unfortunately, no. We’re unable to provide any feedback about any detail on your application. The Board’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
