Council & City

Community funding policy

This policy supports the development of our city's voluntary and community sector, ensuring that Council resources are targeted towards getting the best use of available resources.

The policy aims to give clear guidance and direction for how the Council will fund community and voluntary organisations to achieve social and cultural well-being outcomes in the city. It contains a brief background to community funding and then outlines the specific actions that the Council will take to deliver these outcomes.

The policy clarifies the tools that are available to Council and will assist Council staff to be equitable in their consideration of agencies and provide strong transparency in terms of understanding how the Council invests in the sector.

This policy is being reviewed in 2021-22.
