Can your not-for-profit group make our community more active, vibrant, inclusive, resilient and creative?

Minor Grants support not-for-profit organisations to deliver one-off projects, events and activities with broad community benefit. 

The Community Grants Program, including Minor Grants, is currently being review, with updated Guidelines set for release early in 2022. The review is looking at reducing complexity.

Variations to already funded projects

If you require a project variation or an extension of your project dates contact the Grants Team via grants@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au with the details of your issue. 

If your group has had to cancel a community event which has received council grant funding, and you have spent the money as outlined in your application, you can acquit your grant as usual. If you have an under-spend or hadn't started spending yet, please contact the Grants Team via grants@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au to discuss whether a project variation or a return of funds is your organisation's best option.
