West Tamar Council’s Community Grants Program responds to funding requests for projects displaying evidence of community engagement, involvement and benefit.
Applications open on the 1 July 2022, and close 5pm, 1 May 2023, or until the funding pool is exhausted. Applications will be assessed and funded on a ‘first-in’ basis. Applicants are responsible to ensure that their application is received by council by the closing date and time.
There are two types of grants within the grants program;
Applicants seeking up to $1,000 are not required to contribute to the project financially, but are expected to provide in-kind contributions. Evidence of this is required in your application. For applicants seeking $1,000.00 – $5,000.00, at least 10% of the overall financial cost of the project must be contributed by the applicant, or confirmed by an external funding source (excluding in-kind contributions).
Applicants are encouraged to contact the Community Services Department to provide a brief overview of their project. Please read the guidelines thoroughly prior to submitting your application, and make contact on (03) 6323 9200 should assistance be required.
To request a paper copy of the application form, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (03) 6323 9200.
