Council has developed a number of tools to assist you with planning your project.
Smarty Grants is an electronic grants submission system used by many local governments and other funding bodies. It provides an efficient way for you to submit your application online, and replaces our previous paper based system.
To help Community members to understand and use the new system, Council will be holding Information Sessions on Wednesday 6 March 2019 in the Willis Room at Nunawading Civic Centre. The information sessions will also provide opportunities to discuss your project with Council staff and receive advice to maximise your chances of success.
For more information on the SmartyGrants system, please call council on 9262 633.
For more information about Council’s Community Grants Program, telephone Council's Community Participation and Grants Officer on 9262 6116 or email Jo Connor.
To ensure we have resources to assist you, please request assistance as early as possible during the application period.
Regular updates will be available through our e-newsletter. To receive the e-newsletter, send an email with the subject line subscribe me to Grants@whitehorse.vic.gov.au.
