The Whitsunday Regional Council is pleased to be able to provide financial assistance to community groups as part of the Community Assistance Grants Policy. The focus of the policy is to recognise the important role volunteer based organisations have in the region and how Council can best support their endeavours.

with funding based on participation levels.

multi use sports facilities. Conditions apply.
