The Council’s Discretionary Fund provides Council with the ability to approve small discretionary grants to community members and groups in response to requests that are received from time to time.
The program recognises small activities and events that deserve support from Council. These programs may arise on an ad-hoc basis, which makes them ineligible for other funding programs, or they do not coincide with the timing of the annual Community Grants Program.
Applications of a maximum of $1,000 each are encouraged.
Applications must be:
- Received in writing by Council
- Made using the form available below
- Received at least 3 weeks prior to a Council meeting
If requesting funding for a Council-owned or managed facility, applicants must have a confirmed booking.
