Hobsons Bay City Council provides financial assistance through its annual Community Grants program to local community organisations and groups for activities and projects that meet a community need and address Council priorities. Projects are to be undertaken in the next calendar year. Toyota Motor Corporation Australia also provides financial support to groups through this grants program.
The next Community Grants Program will open in June 2018 for the 2019 year.
A 2018 Quick Response Grants Round will open in February 2018. For further information visit Council’s Quick Response Grants webpage.
Council values the contribution community groups make to the wellbeing of the City of Hobsons Bay and looks forward to continuing to support community groups and organisations through its grants program.
