The purpose of the Community Partnership Funding Program (CPFP) is for council to work in partnership with the community to achieve council’s priorities.
The program provides up to three-year funding towards operational expenses to not-for-profit organisations that provide facilities or services which support the delivery of council’s corporate priorities and demonstrate broad community benefit.
Community organisations who submitted an application in the 2017 round will receive outcome notification once the recommendation report is endorsed by council at the 17 August 2017 Council Meeting.
In 2015, 87 community organisations received a total of $762,906 in funding under the CPFP program. Successful Applicants 2015.
In 2016, an additional 24 community organisations received $145,000 in new partnerships bringing the total of groups funded in this program to 99. Successful Applicants 2016.
If you are interested in applying for partnership funding it is recommended you read the Community Partnership Funding Program Guidelines.
Please contact a Grants Development Officer for more information about program eligibility, aims and criteria.
