2020/21 Sports/Individual Category 1B

This is a preview of the Application Form - 2020/21 - Category 1B - Sports/Individual form. You will be able to start a submission when the round opens at 9:00AM 16 March 2020 (AEDT).


Applications from individuals or athletes/sporting groups who are formally endorsed by their sport’s governing body, a club or other incorporated body will be considered for funding under Council's Community Grant Program.

Individuals may receive up to $500 towards their involvement in their chosen sport or interest. Groups or teams attending the same event can apply for a group total of up to $2,000, excl GST.

Applications should clearly demonstrate that the individual/group is unable to self-fund and that his/her personal circumstances indicate that additional assistance is required.  All information on the individual will be treated in confidence.  A recognised sports governing body, Club or other Incorporated body MUST agree to formally auspice the grant. Please note:  Funds will NOT be given directly to an individual.   The auspicing body will be required to manage all grant funds on behalf of the applicant.
