Community Assistance Grants

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.

There are three grant types available:

◦  Sport & Recreation Clubs Grant – this is available to sport & recreation clubs
     with funding based on participation levels.

◦  Facility Management Grant – this is available to organisations that manage
    multi use sports facilities. Conditions apply.

◦  Special Projects Grant – this is available to all incorporated community groups.

The Special Projects Grants are offered in rounds during the financial year with applications up to $20,000 being considered. The rounds for 2018/19 are:

Round 1 – Applications open:  Monday 2 July 2018
Applications close:  Friday 26 October 2018

Round 2 – Applications open:  Monday 29 October 2018
Applications close:  Friday 8 February 2019

Round 3
 – Applications closed due to funds being exhausted for the 2018/19 financial year.

The first round of 2019/20 Special Projects Grants will open in July 2019.
