Micro Grants Program


The Micro Grants Program offers up to $1,000 for individuals, sole traders and small businesses to improve community wellbeing and achieve social change.  

We understand that a small amount of money can help you get your idea up and running. Micro Grants support innovative people to meet community needs when they may not be eligible for other grants programs.
