Grants and Funding

2023/24 Community Partnership Grants Program

Round one of the 2023/24 Community Partnership Gants Program will open on July 3, 2023 and close on Monday July 31, 2023 (5pm).

What is the program about?

The program aims to help build our region by giving community groups a funding source to undertake new or growing initiatives, projects, or events that benefit the Southern Grampians Shire.

In the past funding has gone towards club building repairs, general equipment, furniture, safety gear, promotional signage, environmental protection programs, heritage projects, events, and festivals.

How are applications evaluated?

Grants will be considered for initiatives by eligible community groups that meet the objectives of the Southern Grampians Shire Council Community Partnership Grants Policy.

Applications will be evaluated and assessed against the criteria contained in the Southern Grampians Shire Council Community Partnership Grants Program Guidelines. The guidelines provide valuable information that will assist you in understanding Council's grant program.

How can I get help with my application?

Council will host drop-in sessions to provide one-on-one support to grant applicants. The first round of sessions will focus on what's required to compile a grant application and the second sessions focus on actually preparing your submission. Council officers will be ready to help and answer any questions you may have.
