Moyne Shire Council Community Grants Program is OPEN!

Moyne Shire Council’s Community Grants Program aims to build stronger communities and deliver benefits to its residents and visitors. The Program assists to facilitate a self-help culture among community groups and encourage groups to work in partnership with the Moyne Shire Council to promote long-term outcomes that benefit the wider community.

The 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 the Moyne Shire Council region.

Applicants should demonstrate in their application economic, visitor, social and environmental benefits of their project to the community and to Council. 

The Moyne Shire Council Community Grants applications must be for projects, festivals, events, equipment, programs or activities that will assist in the ongoing development or creation of sustainable programs and communities, and meet the needs of residents and visitors.
