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.
