What is the Community Grants Program?

Through its Community Vision and Strategic Plan, the City of Marion has expressed a strong commitment to the provision of support to its community.

The purpose of the Community Grants Program is to assist local non-profit community groups and organisations to establish and undertake innovative projects or activities that are of benefit to the community and which support the Strategic Plan - Towards 2040 which can be viewed on the Marion's Strategic Directions page.

Grants are available to support non-profit groups to develop new projects benefiting the community. No matter how large or small your group is, if you have an idea for a project, then you may be eligible for a grant.


Community information session

An information session will be held on Monday 19 February at 7.00pm in the Council Chamber which will include advice on completing the online application and an opportunity to discuss your project with Council staff.
