Community Grant Categories
- With the exception of Discount Support Hall Hire, Council will only accept one grant application per organisation, in each eligible grant category, per year.
- A separate application form is required for initiatives in different grant categories and must be completed and submitted in SmartyGrants by the due date and time. Please use the Equipment Grant Application form for all equipment requests.
- If an applicant applies for more than one grant category, each application must meet the eligibility criteria and reflect a different program, service, project or activity etc. You cannot apply for the same thing in more than one category.
- Applications deemed to be effectively the same during Council’s assessment process, will only be considered in relation to the lesser grant.
