The community sector plays an important role in delivering needed services to those who are most vulnerable in the Geelong/G21 region as it relates to our Live and Learn, Live and Earn and Survive and Thrive grant program areas. While our Community Grants seek to support the sector broadly as it relates to our three program areas we recognise that organisations in the sector are diverse, varying in history, size, scope and funding needs. As a result, we provide three different kinds of Community Grants all of which ultimately support improved service delivery and hence impact in the community:
- Capacity Building Grants – these 18 month grants of up to $30,000 support building the internal capacity of organisations so that they can be more efficient and effective.
- Capital Works and Equipment Grants – these 12 month grants of up to $10,000 support minor capital works and equipment purchases which support program delivery.
- Service Delivery Grants – these 12 month grants of up to $30,000 support operational support, delivery of an existing service, expansion of a service or the creation of a new service.
