Community Grants

Douglas Shire Council is introducing two new annual community grant funding streams.

  • Community Facilities Grant
  • Community Activities and Events Grant

To streamline the process for applicants Council has also introduced an Expression of Interest (EOI) round. The EOI form enables applicants to outline their project and confirm their eligibility before being invited to complete a full application.
