Community Grants

The aim of the City’s Community Grants Program is to provide assistance to local community groups and organisations that make positive contributions to the quality of life within the Greater Geraldton region.

The Community Grants Program is offered once per financial year for one-off events, activities and / or programs.  Requests for funding are capped at $20,000.

The Community Project Support Grant Program is offered up to four (4) times throughout a financial year. Requests for funding are capped at $2,000. Once the annual budget allocation has been expended for the financial year, no further funding will be offered for the remainder of the financial year.
