Community Grants Program

Round 2 Small Grants open on 1 October 2023 and close on 31 October 2023. Notifications will be provided to applicants by 12 December 2023.

The City of Stirling’s Community Grants Program aims to build the sustainability of our community through one transparent, consistent and inclusive process. We will provide a range of grants that are aligned to the priorities of our Council and meet the diverse needs of the community. We will support activities that represent excellent value and do not duplicate existing services provided by the City.

We look forward to supporting many exciting, innovative, and important community initiatives through our Community Grants Program. We are available to guide you through this process and offer a pre-lodgement advice service. We encourage you to contact us in advance if you are considering applying for a grant or attend one of our information sessions held at the commencement of each funding round.

The City’s Community Grant Program Guidelines should be read before commencing the application.

Applications should also support the priorities found in the City's Strategic Community Plan, Sustainable Stirling 2022 - 2032.
