Community Grants Policy

Maroondah City Council is committed to working in partnership with the community to encourage, develop, support and sustain a wide range of local quality recreational, cultural, social & community support and business group initiatives that make a positive contribution to the Maroondah community and strengthen the development of strong local communities. 

Each financial year, Council provides financial assistance to individuals, community groups and not for profit organisations to support the provision of programs and services which respond to identified community need, contribute to the building of stronger communities and are in accordance with Council’s strategic outcomes and key directions as outlined in Maroondah 2040: Our future together.

The purpose of this policy is to provide a broad framework, which will guide the provision of consistent community grants administration and assessment processes across Council.

This Policy provides a framework for the following grant programs and schemes administered by Council:

  • The Community Grants Funding Program (incorporating the Community Development Grants Scheme and the Small Equipment Grants Scheme)
  • The Arts and Cultural Grants Funding Program
  • The Community Assistance Fund Program.

Any Council grant programs and schemes outside this list are not explicitly guided by this Policy.
