ClubGRANTS Scheme

ClubGRANTS aims to improve the living standards of low income and disadvantaged people, and is designed to ensure that larger registered clubs in NSW contribute to:

  • The welfare and broader social fabric of the local community

The maximum amount available for individual projects is $25,000.

Further information, application forms and guidelines can be obtained from the ClubsNSW website.

Need to acquit for a previous Council Community Grant?

If you have received a Council grant in the past and have not completed an Evaluation Report, please contact 9335 2143 or 9335 2155 for advice.

If you received a grant last year and your project is still not completed, you will need to provide an interim evaluation report.
