Community Assistance Grants aim to build community capacity by encouraging participation, promoting inclusion, growing partnerships, providing learning opportunities and supporting social connectedness.
These grants encourage the utilisation and activation of our open spaces, community and cultural facilities.
Community Assistance Grant applications are made available for not-for-profit community groups looking for funding of $2,501 - $6,000.
The Community Assistance Grant Guidelines and Assessment Criteria will assist with eligibility and what is required to submit an application. Prior to completing the application form you should contact Wellington Shire Council to seek feedback on your proposal. This will ensure that you are applying in the correct funding category and your application meets the funding guidelines.
The Assessment Criteria form should be used as a reference by all applicants when they are completing their application form. It is used to assess all Community Assistance Grant applications.
Community Assistance Grants are currently CLOSED. The next round will be available from 12 January 2023 to 1 March 2023.
