Community Grants

Community grants awarded

Knox City Council has awarded a total of $335,761 to 47 local groups as part of the 2018-19 Community Development Fund grants program.

The annual grants program is aimed at assisting locally-focussed, not for profit organisations to buy equipment, carry out minor improvement projects and run activities, events and programs.

The individual grants of up to $20,000 encourage one-off, short-term projects and also supports established community events. This program does not fund capital works or structural building improvements.

In the 2018-19 year to date, Knox Council has also awarded more than $81,000 under the Minor Grants Program to 38 community groups seeking funding for incidental items that benefit the residents of the City of Knox.

Leisure Minor Capital Works grants were also awarded in August, with 18 organisations sharing a total funding pool of $104,639.

Mayor Jake Keogh said the annual grants program is an important way for Council to support local initiatives and activities that benefit our residents.

‘Council is very pleased to be able to assist so many worthy groups, many of which are run by community volunteers, to continue their great work and offer new programs to the broader community,’ Mayor Keogh said.

A joint celebration event for recipients of the Community Development Fund and the Leisure Minor Capital Works grants program was held on Wednesday 14 November.
