Community Grants

The Borough of Queenscliffe advises that its annual community grants program has been postponed due to ongoing efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus. We know that many community groups are finding it challenging to meet, prepare documents and undertake future planning in these uncertain times. Postponing the program until later in the year will ensure all our community groups are able to apply.

Details of Council's 2020/2021 Community Grants Program guidelines will be available at a later date. Council wishes to remind recipients of previous years grants to provide project acquittal reports by 30 June 2020. Please click here for a copy of the Acquittal report and submit attention to Shannon Di Lisio info@queenscliffe.vic.gov.au

The Borough provides grants to community organisations that support community, art and cultural projects and activities that enhance the wellbeing and quality of life of residents living in the Borough of Queenscliffe.

The Borough of Queenscliffe Council provides grants of up to $2,000 for projects to provide vital community services and activities.

The grants program aims to assist local community groups and organisations to increase involvement and provide opportunities for Council and the community to work together. The Borough knows that groups often need support and annually makes a total of $20,000 in grant funding available through the Community Grants program.

The Borough of Queenscliffe Community Grants program is provided:

  • To encourage and assist common interest groups to take an active involvement in the life of their community for the overall benefit of that community and its members
  • To help communities to help themselves to become stronger and more economically, environmentally and socially sustainable
  • To enhance leadership and other civic skills within communities to enhance the capacity of those communities to address local issues and challenges and to build vibrant, healthy places
  • To develop a sense of community spirit, pride, ownership and identity within communities.
