MEDIA RELEASE - Community Grants Program open

24 June 2021

Community groups, individuals and not-for profit organisations in the Glenelg Shire are invited to make their project a reality through Council’s Community Grants Program.

Grant applications for round one of the 2021-2022 Community Grants Program will open from Monday 28 June and close Monday 12 July.

The grant categories include recreation, public halls, community strengthening, community events and arts culture and heritage.

Glenelg Shire Mayor Cr Anita Rank encouraged local community groups to apply for the bi-annual grant program.

“Council is incredibly proud of its Community Grants Program, which has helped hundreds of local not-for-profit groups, committees, clubs and organisations bring their ideas to life,” she said.

“In the past we’ve allocated funding for hall refurbishments, new sporting equipment, marketing and logistical costs for events and much more.

“The past year in particular has highlighted the significant contribution that local groups and organisations bring to our community and help make our Shire a great place to live, work and socialise.

“We want to continue supporting our communities and help to deliver great outcomes for all, which is why these grants are more important and timelier than ever.”

Applications for round one of the 2021-2022 Community Grants Program can be completed and submitted online at

Applicants can apply for grants for up to $1,000 without any co-contribution. All funding amounts requested between $1,000 - $5,000 require a dollar for dollar contribution.

Potential applicants are reminded to refer to the Community Grants Guidelines to assess their eligibility to apply. All organisations and groups are strongly encouraged to discuss their projects with the relevant council officer prior to submitting their application.

Guidelines can be downloaded from the Community Grants section of Council’s website.
