Applications for the 2018-2019 Community Grants Program will open on Monday, 2 July 2018, and will remain open until midnight on Sunday, 29 July 2018.

Each year, Alexandrina Council makes funding available to our community under the Community Grants Program for (but not limited to) not-for-profit sporting, recreational, social, arts and other community groups and, in some instances, local individuals in the support of one-off activities, projects, festivals and events. 

The purpose of the Community Grants Program is to encourage local groups to take a more active and visible role in the community and create opportunities for community participation.

The 2017-18 Community Grants Program saw fifty community groups and organisations receive financial support, totalling almost $142,000, toward a range of projects and activities that enhanced quality of life, and delivered services to the community.
