Community Grants Program

The Community Grants program has been developed to financially support community groups and not-for-profit organisations to provide innovative and inclusive programs, events and projects in line with Council’s Community Strategic Plan.

The program is designed to meet the following outcomes:

  • Effective and efficient use of resources to assist community groups, and not-for-profit organisations provide events, services and activities for the benefit of the local community.
  • The program includes support for individuals selected to compete at a recognised sporting or cultural competition outside the Sydney metropolitan area in NSW, interstate or internationally.
  • An equitable, transparent process for determining and allocating Council’s grants and donations with appropriate accountabilities for grant recipients.
  • Greater community participation, social inclusion, cohesion and engagement, and improved quality of life for the community of Hunter’s Hill Council local government area.

Community grants are not for recurring annual expenses, they are for ‘one-off’ projects or events, pilot programs, or establishment of a group or activity

A project will only be funded once.

The maximum amount of funding for each application is $1500.
