During the current COVID-19 environment, all activities must follow Federal & State Government advice and be designed for physically-distancing modes of delivery.
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 not-for-profit groups and organisations to undertake projects and activities that:
- Help meet Wyndham City’s strategic objectives
- Build Wyndham’s community capacity and contribute to community strengthening
- Improve the physical health and emotional wellbeing of community members
- Play a positive role in building an environmentally sustainable future
Grants are provided to achieve outcomes towards the strategic objectives outlined in Wyndham City Council City Plan, the Environment and Sustainability Strategy 2015-2040, and other relevant strategies and plans.
