Community Grants

Moyne Shire Council is committed to supporting the development of strong communities and nurturing the ideas and local groups that make the shire a desirable destination to both live and visit. 

Funding opportunities are in place to champion and celebrate our region.

Through the Moyne Shire Council Community Grants Program, Council aims to build stronger communities and benefit residents and visitors. The Program assists to facilitate a self-help culture among community groups and encourage groups to work in partnership with Council to promote long-term outcomes that benefit the wider community.  Applicants should demonstrate in their application economic, visitor, social and environmental benefits of their project to the community and to Council.
