Community Grants

Community grants are designed to enable community groups to partner with Council to help meet community needs. Grants are awarded to projects that demonstrate the greatest ability to positively impact the community and provide value for money.

A total of $200,000 will be allocated to local not-for-profit community organisations through Georges River Council’s Community Grants Program 2017-2018 Round 2 in the following categories:

  • Up to $10,000 - Community Assets and Equipment
  • Up to $25,000 - Connected Communities – Major Programs
Applications closed on Sunday 15 April 2018. Succesful applicants will be notified from Tuesday 29 May 2018. If you wish to discuss your application, please contact Council's Community Development Officer - Grants on 9330 6400.


Evaluation and Acquittal of Past Grants

Organisations that received a grant in Round 1 of the Community Grants Program 2017-18 are required to complete a Project Update, or if the project is complete, a Project Report and Financial Acquittal.
