Strategic Priority Grants

Strategic Priority Grants provide multi-year funding for community-led projects, activities or services. They're designed to encourage community leadership and ownership of programmes that seek solutions to local social, environmental and cultural issues.

We will fund community organisations whose outcomes directly contribute to Council's vision: Small city benefits, big city ambition.

Our funding priorities are based on the strategies that will help us achieve Council's goals for Palmy to be a creative and exciting city, a safe and connected community, and an eco-city.
