Community Grants Program

​​Round 2 of Council's Community Grants Initiative are now open

Lockyer Valley Regional Council has brought forward Round 2 of the 2019-20 Category 1 - Community Grants Program to assist in addressing drought issues.

Lockyer Valley Mayor, Cr Tanya Milligan said Council would prioritise applications from eligible groups seeking funding for projects to support the community through the impacts of the ongoing drought.​

“There is no denying the impact this drought is having on our community so anything we can do to assist, we will,” Mayor Milligan said.

Applications for Round 2 are now open. Organisations that were successful in receiving funding in Round 1, 2019-20 will be eligible to apply for funding in Round 2, 2019-20; however, priority will be given to applicants who did not receive funding in Round 1.​

Applications will remain open until 31 January 2020.

Council’s Community Grants Program is for non-recurrent grants between $500 and $4,000 and are available for not-for-profit community organisations to undertake projects, activities or events which benefit the wider community.

Applications are assessed on merit and the availability of funds. 

Please review the updated Community Grants Program Guidelines 2019-20​​ before applying.
