Community Grants

The Community Grants Program aims to recognise the importance of providing financial assistance to community groups, services and organisations located or operating within the Pyrenees Shire, to enable the provision of activities and events which promote community activity, achievement, participation and wellbeing.

The Community Grants Program target group comprises of:

  • community groups, services and organisations located or operating within the Pyrenees Shire, for Shire residents;
  • community groups, services, organisations incorporated as a community organisation; and
  • non-profit community groups/organisations
Please ensure you contact Council's Community Wellbeing and Grants Coordinator on 5349 1100 or email carmel.pethick@pyrenees.vic.gov.au to discuss your project. Applications open twice a year; usually in March and again in September.
 
Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 Virus Council's Community Grant Program has opened late this year. The new opening and close dates are from 10 April 2020 and closing at 5pm on Monday 18 May 2020.

Auspicing

If your group does not meet the eligibility requirements you may be able to apply with an auspice. Please see guidelines for more information on this.

Please note that organisations who act as an auspice will not be disadvantaged by any funding allocation to the organisation to which they provide auspice support. Council reserves the right to allocate funding amounts.

Please ensure you contact Council's Community Wellbeing and Grants Coordinator on 5349 1100 or email carmel.pethick@pyrenees.vic.gov.au to discuss your project.

Funding Applications

Community groups and sporting clubs often require a funding application to be submitted by Council to assist with facility developments and upgrades. Council is required to address certain information in a funding application and the checklist available below outlines the suggested planning process. It has been developed to ensure that potential funding applications are planned properly and have the best chance of being funded in what is a very competitive environment. If you are planning a facility development or upgrade, download the form and work through the checklist with your committee. Contact the appropriate council officer early in the planning stages as it is important that they are aware of your project to allow them to identify the most appropriate funding source and provide advice throughout the planning phase. If you require further information or assistance please contact our Manager Community Wellbeing on (03) 5349 1100.
