About Community Grants

Community Grants Round 1 recipients 2017

Does your not-for-profit community group have a great project that needs funding? Then apply for financial assistance through our Community Grants Program. Preference will be given to collaborative projects that will improve or embellish a public space in your community, or seeks to protect or promote our local history.

The Community Grants Program provides funding support to community groups and not-for-profit organisations to establish community based projects, which: 

  • provide opportunities for residents of Port Macquarie-Hastings to participate in a broad range of arts, culture, or local history activities that benefit the quality and cultural heritage of their lives;

  • provide opportunities for residents to participate in special community events with the aim of celebrating and enriching the community’s lifestyle;

  • foster initiative and self-help among residents;

  • encourage the participation of people in activities who have limited opportunities to participate due to low income, geographic or social isolation, cultural background or disability; or

  • strengthen community skills and capacity.
