Grant sessions and workshops

There are six Community Grant streams open for application:

  • Minor capital works
  • Major capital works
  • Community wellbeing
  • Minor community events
  • Major community events
  • Community Essentials - Quick Response Grant

To help community members complete the grant application process, council is holding free Community Grants Information Sessions in January and delivering Community Grant Writing Workshop Training in February. The Community Grant information sessions are an opportunity for attendees to learn about the program and ask specific questions. They will focus on available streams, funding, eligibility, and the application process.

Following these information sessions, the Community Grant Writing Workshop Training sessions will help attendees refine and write their applications for council's program and other funding opportunities. They will focus on providing a practical framework for writing a clear, succinct grant application that aligns with the funder's needs.

Grant application support

Mayor of Latrobe City Council, Councillor Darren Howe recommends that anyone interested in submitting a Round 2 grant application should consider attending the information and training sessions to enhance their understanding of the program. "These valuable sessions can help clubs and community groups to improve their knowledge and skills about the grant program as well as submit an application that meets the assessment criteria."

"There are limited funds available for grants, and it is up to council to ensure funds are being allocated where they will be most impactful. We greatly appreciate the community's effort with their applications and believe these sessions will be rewarding for all involved," Cr Howe said.
