Community grants

About our grants

Roper Gulf Regional Council runs a Community Grants Program to support different projects within the region. These grants are used to strengthen local culture, economy, family or the environment. Grant applications are usually called for twice a year through advertisements in local media and on the Council website.

Anyone from individual applicants to community groups are encouraged to apply for up to $1000 (minor grant) and incorporated organisations for up to $3000 (major grant). The Council’s Grants Co-ordinator collates the applications received, and Council’s Grants Committee assesses the applications by how they support the Council’s vision, mission, goals and core values. The Grants Committee then makes recommendations to the Council, and the Council decides on successful applicants and grant amount.

The maximum funding pool available for 2016-17 was $30,000, which has been exhausted. As such, no applications will be requested for round three.
