2019 Community grants program

At the Ordinary Council Meeting of 13 November 2018, Hobsons Bay City Council endorsed the 2019 Community Grants Program, allocating $169,526 across 98 community projects.

Notification of the outcome for the 2019 Community Grants Program has been sent to all applicants via a letter and funds will be distributed to successful applicants in December 2018.

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 2019 for the 2020 year.

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.
