Wyndham City’s Community Grants Program is provided in line with the role of local government in grant giving to fund projects designed to meet pre-defined community development outcomes.

The Community Grants Program enables Wyndham City to provide financial assistance to local and community organisations and groups to undertake projects and activities that:

  • Help meet Wyndham City’s strategic objectives
  • Build Wyndham’s community capacity and contribute to community strengthening

Currently, grants are provided to achieve outcomes towards the strategic objectives outlined in Wyndham City Council City Plan (CP), the Community Health, Wellbeing and Safety Plan 2013-17 (CHWSP) and the Environment and Sustainability Strategy 2015-2040 (ESS).
