Community Assistance Grants Round 2 NOW OPEN

02 Mar 2022

The George Town Council is pleased to announce that the Community Assistance Grant Round 2 for the 2021/22 financial year is NOW open.  

In August 2021, the Community Assistance Grants Program  Round 1 had a large number of successful applications that exhausted nearly the entire Community Assistance Grants budget for the financial year. In the February Council Meeting, Councillors passed a motion to approve additional funding of $9,000 to the Community Assistance Grants program so the second grant round for 2021/22 could be conducted, giving a total of $10,000 available funds.

The George Town Council is committed to supporting community organisations  who contribute to building a vibrant and active community.  Are you a community club or organisation and have identified a need or improvement to the local community?

Community Grants may be provided to community groups whose members are primarily residents of the George Town municipal area, or are located in the George Town municipal area, and the support is being sought to benefit the community of the George Town municipality by:

  • Assisting community clubs and organisations to grow capacity and build social capital;
  • Encouraging innovative approaches to emerging issues and need of the community in the George Town municipality.

Eligible projects, activities and programs could be (but not limited to) the improvements of arts and cultural projects, increased participation in sport and recreational activities, improved environmental outcomes or expansion of volunteering opportunities. Note that if you have successful applied and received a grant from Council in Round 1 then the organisation, group or club is ineligible to apply for the Community Grants Round 2 for 2021/22.
