Community Grants & Service Agreements

Applications for funding for the 2022-2023 financial year are now open. Applications close 25 February 2022.

To download a copy of the Funding Application form and guidelines, click the links below:

    Two types of funding are available:

    • Community Grants provide a one-off, lump sum fund for projects including capital expenditure.
    • Service Agreements provide recurring funds each year for three years for ongoing projects.

    Grant funds will be available to the successful applicants during the 2021-2022 financial year, once Council has adopted the annual budget. This usually occurs at the July or August Council meeting.

    Funding applications are assessed by Council. Applications that address the Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes Strategic Community Plan will have a stronger likelihood of success. The Strategic Community Plan can be accessed here.

    In order to be eligible for a Community Group Grant or a Service Agreement you must have completed and lodged a “grant acquittal form” for any prior Community Group Grant or Service Agreement.  All questions on the acquittal form must be answered and copies of relevant invoices, receipts or Profit and Loss Statements must be attached to the acquittal form.  If acquittal forms are outstanding, your organization will not be eligible for future funding. Before submitting your grant application, a representative of your organisation is required to meet the Shire’s Executive Manager of Community Services, Elizabeth Denniss, to discuss your application.  

    This year, application information has been emailed to community organisations on our Community Groups contact list who have provided their email address. Groups who have not suppled an email contact have had this information sent in the post. If your group has not received their letter, or wishes to add or update its contact details, please contact Elizabeth Denniss on 9761 0800 or via

    The deadline for applications is the last Friday in February each year, with funding being available in the next financial year.
