If you have an idea for a project that you think might be eligible to be funded, the Grants Team can also refer you to a Wyndham City Officer, who can support you to develop and deliver your project idea and apply for funding.

Support officers can assist you in a number of ways:
- Clarification on any of the application responses
- Risks or issues with the proposed methodology
- Activities to consider incorporating into the project
- Identifying areas which require further supporting evidence or explanation.
