Community Grants Program 2018

The Murrumbidgee Council Community Grants Program gives the community the opportunity to apply for financial assistance to provide services that benefit the residents.

This financial assistance is in the form of one-off annual grants to community organisations to assist them in the provision of services and projects. The maximum grant allocated under the Community Grants Program is $3,000.

Please note that application for a grant does not necessarily result in funding, or may result in only a portion of the amount requested being allocated.

This funding is one-off and non-recurrent. Applications for the same project/program may not be successful in subsequent years.

All grant applications must be completed using the Community Grants Application Form available at link below or from Council Offices.
