Community and not-for-profit groups have been invited to apply for Mornington Peninsula Shire community grants. The Shire’s community grants program supports projects, programs and services that identify a community need and contributes to the building of stronger and more creative communities. 

There are five types of grants that groups can apply for:

Creative community grants assist community and non-profit groups interested in initiating arts and cultural activities and programs with public outcomes;

Community placemaking grants support community-led initiatives that align to the placemaking criteria and the council’s strategic goals;

Community support grants provide funding for a wide range of projects that contribute to improving the health and well-being of the community;

Flexi grants, which remain open for the year until funds are spent, provide an opportunity for community groups needing a small amount of money to start a new project, purchase small equipment, train volunteers or host a small community activity; and,

Youth encouragement grants, which also remain open for the year until funds are spent, provide support for individuals under 18 years of age who are competing nationally or internationally in a variety of fields.

Applications close on Friday, August 16. For more information or to apply, email [email protected], phone 5950 1425 or visit
