How to improve your application

Did you know that Council offers detailed information about the make-up of our local community, right at your fingertips? Our community profile provides information about the demographics of the suburbs within the Georges River area, including data about our population, age, ethnicity, languages spoken at home, accessibility needs, and so much more. You can use this information to help support your grant application, to better demonstrate community need and benefit of your program or activity.

Financial Reporting Requirements

Please note there are new financial reporting requirements for recipients of Council funding. Please view the New Financial Reporting page for details.
