We understand that there are circumstances where the community may need some financial assistance to complete a project, run an event or undertake some maintenance on their facility. This grant is provided to support minor initiatives that encourage partnerships, celebrate an occasion and assist with maintenance of community assets.

These grants are open all year round. Applications now need be made through the SmartyGrants online application service.

Please read the funding guidelines below and complete a Grant Notification Form or contact the Grants Officer on 1300 366 244 to receive feedback on your proposal and ensure you are eligible to apply and your application meets all funding guidelines.

Attention Event Organisers

We're helping to keep Victorian events safe. In addition to notifying Council of your public event you also now need to register your event and submit documentation to The Victorian State Government based on number of attendees and risk factors. The link below takes you to the Victorian State Government Public Events page and guides you do a self-assessment of your event and complete necessary planning.

Questions relating to public events can be directed to the 24/7 Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398 or emailed to COVIDSafeEvents@ecodev.vic.gov.au.

Events held during the COVID-19 period

It is the event organiser's responsibility to ensure that any event is compliant with current state government restrictions. It is also the event organiser's responsibility to monitor current COVID-19 advice and alter event plans to support any active requirements. For up-to-date information, visit www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au. Council will assess events in accordance with standard processes. Please note this does not negate the event organiser's responsibilities to ensure their event complies with state government COVID-19 requirements.
