30 Jan 2020

We are pleased to announce that Round 2 of the Community Grants Program will open on Monday 3rd February 2020. 

The George Town Council is committed to supporting community organisations whose activities contribute to building a vibrant and active community, and individuals under the age of 25 who represent Tasmania or Australia in national or international events, by providing financial assistance.

Council’s Community Assistance Program is comprised of an annual allocation of funds which provides a strategic opportunity to work in partnership with community groups, organisations and individuals to strengthen their capacity to support an active, vibrant and culturally diverse community life.

The objective of the Policy is to provide a robust and transparent framework for the provision of financial assistance to community clubs and organisations for activities and programs that aim to grow community capacity, initiatives and programs, or assist the community to reduce factors that lead to social disadvantage.  Examples of suitable projects include but not limited to :

  • Minor infrastructure, ie purchase of equipment for use by organisations;
  • Community Arts Projects;
  • Community workshops and training courses

Application forms are available on the website, or a hard copy can be obtained from Council Office.

It is essential that applicants thoroughly read the Community Grants Policy to ensure that your application meets the criteria set therein.

Application forms, guidelines and policy are available on Council's website :
