Community Grants

Council's annual Community Grants Program supports local projects or initiatives that benefit our community.

We support activities that contribute to community strengthening, arts and cultural development, environmental sustainability, revitalising Braybrook, and encouraging wellbeing.

2016-2017 Community Grants Opening Soon!

Last year we were inspired and overwhelmed by the variety and number of innovative grant applications received. We funded a total of 46 projects in 7 categories. We are excited to announce a grant budget again of $160 000 to distribute to projects happening in and around the City of Maribyrnong.

The categories this year include Arts & Culture, Environmental Sustainability, Small & Senior Grants and Large Grants of up to $15 000. So it's time to get your thinking caps on to make the most of this opportunity. To help get your creativity into gear click the link below to view a full list of last years successful applicants. From the theatrics of the Women's Circus, to the sustainable ingenuity of Yarraville Community Centre's Restore Cafe - the range of ideas and inventiveness was fabulous!

The 2016-2017 Community Grant round opens on Friday 1 July and will close on Monday 15 August 2016.
