Yarrabilba Small Grants Program – Applications close 30 April 2019

Do you have a great idea for the Yarrabilba Community? The Yarrabilba Small Grants Program is an initiative of the Community Enterprise FoundationTM and Lendlease Communities. We encourage organisations that share Lendlease values to apply. Recognising the importance of building communities from the ground up, we’ve created the program to fund projects or events that benefit the community, including (but not limited to) arts & culture, recreation, education, welfare, environment and health.

The Community Enterprise FoundationTM offers small grants for projects and events that occur within Yarrabilba and those in surrounding areas whose involvement or impact reaches Yarrabilba. There are four grants rounds per year.

This is your opportunity to make a positive and lasting impact within Yarrabilba. Let’s make your community initiative happen! For more information, view the Yarrabilba Small Grants Program Information Sheet.

Latest community newsletter out now!

Hot off the press, you'll find more about the recently launched Yarrabilba Honey project. We also give you a sneak peek of the artwork produced by students from St Clare’s Primary School with Indigenous artist, Libby Harward. Did you know that there is a biofuel plantation underway at Yarrabilba? We talk about this long-term project and how at maturation the plants will produce seeds that will eventually be harvested to obtain their oil. The oil is used to produce a diesel fuel substitute. In other sustainability news, we also introduce an exciting new food agility project that you can be a part of too. We talk to one of the recent recipients of the Brighter Futures scholarship program. She shares how this grant will make a difference to her studies and life. There’s plenty more inside, as well as a guide of the upcoming events in our community. Read the Yarrabilba newsletter
