Annual Community Grants

Each year, we invite local not-for-profit groups that contribute to making Bayside a better place to live to apply for a community grant.

Council's community grants program aims to:

  • To assist community organisations to establish, extend and improve programs and services that address local needs.
  • To encourage voluntary activity, community participation and the contribution of local groups and organisations to community life.
  • To promote community development and partnership opportunities to address community needs.

Council's Annual Community Grants program supports initiatives proposed by community groups which strengthen and enrich community life through the provision of an improved range of leisure, cultural, community development, environmental, health, education, sporting and welfare programs and activities.

Grants of up to $7,500 each are considered for initiatives by eligible community groups that meet the objectives of Council's Grants Policy and the Annual Community Grants Guidelines - 2024 Community Grant guidelines

Annual Community Grant applications are now CLOSED for the 2024/25 round.  For information on next year's round, please contact Bayside's Community and Social Planner on (03) 9599 4787, or
