Stronger Communities Grants Program 2016

The Stronger Communites Grants Program will allocate up to $1 million in grants over three years for projects that build more vibrant, sustainable and inclusive local communities. This grant initiative forms part of the Stronger Communities funding that is now available to our newly created Inner West Council (IWC) from the NSW Government. Local community groups will be able to apply for community grants of up to $50,000. Preference will be given to physical projects and may include upgrades of club facilities, funding of sporting equipment, or providing tools and equipment to improve the delivery of community services.
