Community Grants

What is the Litchfield Council Community Grants Scheme?

Council's Community Grants Scheme aims to support community projects and activities which address local needs, strengthen community relationships, build social inclusion and environmental sustainability, and enhance the well-being of Litchfield residents.

To align with these aims, the Scheme will support applications which fit with Council's Strategic Plan 2018-2022, three priority areas and nine outcomes.

There are two types of Community Grants available

  • Annual Community Grants (up to $5,000); and
  • Community Initiative Grants (up to $500).

Annual Community Grants

The 2018/19 Annual Community Grants have now closed.

The next round of grants will open early 2020.

Community Initiatives Grants

The Community Initiatives programme provides flexibility for Council to provide funding at any time for capacity building activities within the Municipality, assist individuals representing the Litchfield area, or make donations to fundraising appeals for local, major national or international issues. 

The total pool of funding will be set each year in the Council budget with individual grants/donations/sponsorships up to a value of $500.

Applications can be made at any time of year, but must identify a need and benefit to the Litchfield Community. Applications will be assessed under delegation by the Chief Executive Officer and reported to Council on a quarterly basis.
