Community Grants Program

Our Community Grants Policy provides contemporary, beneficial and accessible grant programs for the community groups and sporting clubs in our Municipality.

The Grant Programs provide financial assistance for projects and activities that involve, engage and provide benefit to community groups and individuals within the Sorell Municipality.  The Grant Programs are open throughout the year for applications and will be awarded in line with the annual budget allocation as approved by Council.

There are three streams under the Grants Program:

Community Grants Program

This grant program aims to support groups for amounts of up to $2000 for one off activities or projects that benefit the community. These may include community events and programs, asset purchases and projects in the local community.

Quick Response Community Assistance Program

This Program supports local community development and health and wellbeing activities, through arts and culture, community participation, heritage and history, sports and recreation. This program aims to provide assistance to organisations with the costs associated with running their activities, to the maximum amount of $500 per year.

Individual Achievement Program

This Program aims to encourage and celebrate individuals who have achieved outstanding results in their chosen field by providing funds to residents who have qualified or been selected by a peak body to represent their state or nation, to a maximum amount of $250 per application.

All applications will be assessed for eligibility and merit against the criteria under the program for which they are applying and will undergo a competitive assessment process.
