Minor Grants

Project funding for not-for-profit community groups up to $2000.

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.

Always check the guidelines for eligibility and priorities before applying.

Note: if applying for community event funding, please apply under the category best aligned with your event's purpose. If applying for a Christmas, New Year (December 31-January 1), Australia Day, ANZAC Day or Remembrance Day event, please see council's new Festive and Commemorative Events grants.
