Community Board Grants

Applications for our Community Board Grants are open until 31 July.

Each Community Board area has a contestable grants pool to encourage and support not-for-profit organisations that have a positive impact on the community.

The grants help local organisations pay for specific projects or the maintenance of facilities that benefit our communities.

Event sponsorship funding applications for all Community Board areas are also to be submitted through this Community Board grant programme.

Every year we get a huge number of applications and the fund is limited. We realise there will be a lot of groups and organisations doing it tough with the fall out of COVID-19 so we suggest in the applications, if they can also demonstrate how this has impacted on them, that helps the Boards make informed decisions.

  1. Check that your group or organisation meet the Community Grant eligibility criteria 
  2. Complete the Community Grant Application Form and submit during July (forms on left menu)
  3. The application will be reviewed by the local Community Board
  4. Grants are approved/declined in August/September
  5. Need support?  Contact the Community Management Area Manager for your Ward, they are here to help.
