At the online information session, you will hear about the eligibility requirements of grants, how to apply for a grant, examples of previous winning initiatives, and the public voting system. You will also have the chance to share your ideas and hear tips on how to make your application stand out.

Once the application period closes, the grant applications will go through an eligibility check, and three finalists will win $4000 each, as chosen by a community committee.

Winners will be announced on Thursday 20th October 2022 on our Community Facebook page and will be contacted directly by our Social Sustainability Officer, Alison. 

Winners will have until August 31st 2023, to deliver their initiatives/ events and will be required to submit a short report about their initiative/ event, once completed.
