 Community Funding 

The Shire has a broad-based funding program for grants to support community-based activities. The focus of the program is for community driven events, projects and other initiatives that demonstrate community engagement.  Applications are considered by Council to be included in the Shire of Lake Grace yearly Budget.

The next funding application round will be take place from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021. Application form here.

Before submitting an application you must discuss your proposed activity with our Community Services Officer, Cheryl Chappell, on 9890 2500 or by email applications close Friday 24 April 2020


The Shire of Lake Grace is dependent on grant funds to achieve many of its outcomes. It is important that we keep up to date with grants on offer and do our best to find best fit grants for our projects.

Community groups often need to apply for funding for a range of projects and we encourage those groups to contact the Shire for assistance in sourcing grant funding.
