Funding Opportunities

Community Grants

The Council is committed to encouraging community and Council groups in the council area to conduct projects that are of benefit to the community. The Community Grant scheme is a way of empowering communities to apply for funding to progress and improve their local area through planned assistance and equitable distribution of limited funding from council.

The Community Grants Program is offered twice a year around February and September.

Mount Barker District Council invites individuals and community groups and organisations of the district to apply for Community Grants.
