Community Grant application outcome


After Council's application review process is complete all grant applicants will be notified via email or in writing (for Seniors Operational Grants) if they have been successful or not. 

Receiving a grant

  • Successful applicants will receive a funding agreement that sets out the terms on which Council is prepared to make the grant available.
  • Establishment Grant applicants will be required to attend Community Governance training.
  • If you accept the offer, sign the funding agreement and return to Council.
  • Grant funding is paid by EFT (Electronic Fund Transfer).

At the end of your project implementation, an acquittal (project and financial) report must be submitted.

Council will require the grant to be returned if:

  • You use the grant on unauthorised expenses/payments.
  • You are unable to provide proof of expenses/payments.
  • The grant wasn’t used as set out in the funding agreement.

Updating your project 

If you need to change your proposed project or activity, you need to complete a Project Variation Request Form.

A Project Variation is an amendment to your funding agreement that must be approved by Council in writing prior to making any changes. 

To discuss any variation and obtain a Project Variation Form, please email
