Stronger Communities Grants Program now open

The Stronger Communities Grants Program will allocate up to $1 million in grants over three years for projects that build more vibrant, sustainable and inclusive local communities. This grant initiative forms part of the Stronger Communities funding that is now available to our newly created Inner West Council (IWC) from the NSW Government. Local community groups will be able to apply for community grants of up to $50,000.

Applications close Monday 29 August 2016, 5pm.

Visit the Stronger Communities Grants page to read more and apply.

Council offers a range of community grants each year to assist local community groups and projects. Non-profit community organisations and services are invited to apply for funding for projects that meet the social needs of residents in the area.

Grants for the former Marrickville Council closed on 1 June 2016.
