Community Grants Scheme

Carrathool Shire Council’s community grant scheme helps local non-profit community organisations/groups to undertake a project to meet identified needs in the community. Past projects have included air-conditioning, building repairs, outdoor seating, security system, community notice board, shade sails, fencing and entertainment.
The scheme provides up to $1,500 for projects within the Carrathool Shire Local Government area that support the wellbeing and benefit our local communities.
Applications are invited commencing July each year, with funds distributed to successful applicants on completion of the project.


Before applying please read Tips for a Successful Application.

Contact Council:

  • if you are not sure your project is suitable
  • for advice on how to fill out the application form
  • if you have any further questions regarding the application process
