Have you got a great “community minded” idea but need a hand making it a reality? Our Community Grants 2021/22 Program supports eligible community groups and organisations to help others.
Funding of up to $10,000 is designed to strengthen our community through projects and programs delivered by local groups. These might include promoting and encouraging social connection and participation in community life or addressing health and well-being inequities.
Applications close 12 midnight Monday 16 August.
To learn more or apply go to Community Grants Program.
The 2021 Seniors Festival is a great way to have fun participating in Port Phillip’s lively community and cultural life.
Eligible individuals, groups and cultural organisations can apply through our Seniors Festival Events Funding Grants program for up to $800 to produce inclusive and accessible events in Port Phillip.
Applications close 4 pm Friday 23 July.
