Community Grants Program
Community Grants 2016
Council invites funding applications from not-for-profit community groups or organisations for services and projects that support the outcomes to be achieved under FuturesPlan20: A 20-year vision for the City of Canada Bay.
FuturesPlan20 (FP20) expresses the City's vision to be innovative, dynamic and sustainable through active partnership with the community. FP20 was developed in 2008 in consultation with community members on what they would like the City to look and feel like over the next 20 years in order to achieve an engaged, green, healthy, liveable, moving, prosperous and vibrant city.
Applicants must be not-for-profit groups or organisations that are based within the Council area or provide services and activities within the area. Applicants must demonstrate how their service or project helps to achieve one (or possibly more) of the outcomes listed within FP20.
Grants are available under two funding streams:
- Community Support Grants - funding up to $1,000 to support existing operations
- Community Development Grants - funding up to $3,000 to support the development of additional discrete projects.
