Community Grants

Community Activation Grants

Waratah-Wynyard Council values the contributions individuals and groups make to the cultural, social and economic development of our communities.  Through the provision of Community Activation Grants, the Council supports projects, programs and activities developed for the benefit of Waratah-Wynyard residents.

The Community Activation Grants provide the opportunity for organisations to apply for funding assistance under the following areas:

  • Community small grants – projects for community groups not covered in other categories
  • Recreation & wellbeing – eg. Australia representatives, sporting club projects, wellbeing programs
  • Art & culture – eg Art prizes
  • Youth & Education – Scholarships, education prizes
  • Community Support – Small projects maximum $200

The Community Activation Grants program provides grant monies up to a maximum of $2,000 per eligible projects, within the allocated annual budget. Once the budgeted amount has been distributed no further allocations will be made in that financial year – even if the application meets all eligibility requirements.
