Small Grants


Surf Coast Shire Small Grants Program

The aim of the Surf Coast Shire Small Grants program is to support community groups, projects and initiatives by encouraging new opportunities and strengthening collaboration between groups. 

The program is available to new and existing groups, to develop project ideas or improve services within the local community. Funds can be provided for projects and activities which fall into the following categories: Community Initiatives, Environment, Culture & Arts, Recreation & Leisure.

Funding for Small Grants is available in February and July each year. Check this site for announcement of the opening and closing dates for the next round of Small Grants.

If you are seeking support for a Community Event apply for funding from Surf Coast Shire's new Event Grants Program. Here you will find guidelines and an online application form for Events funding.
