What can be funded?

Projects (ideas) that improve local neighbourhoods, are accessible to the community and can be delivered within 12 months. Some projects will also require development or planning approval. Check out the FAQs for more information on what type of projects can be funded. 

Projects should align with one or more of the following categories:

  1. Open space, sport and recreation
  2. Mobility, transport and safety
  3. Health, wellbeing and inclusion
  4. Arts and culture
  5. Environment and sustainability
  6. Innovation and technology

How will the funding be provided?

Successful ideas will be funded through a grant agreement that will detail the funding amount, funding period, reporting requirements and other key points.

As individuals cannot enter into a grant agreement under this program, ideas must be sponsored by an eligible organisation. Organisations that can support your idea and manage the funding for you are:

  • Incorporated community groups under the Associations Incorporation Act 1985 or similar legislation
  • Incorporated and registered not-for-profit organisations (e.g. registered charity, social enterprise)
  • Local councils and State Government agencies
  • Schools, kindergartens and child care centres
  • Community sporting/recreation clubs
