Thriving Communities Program

Grants Committee General

Thriving Communities Program

The Thriving Communities Program consists of small grants for projects that build social capital through facilitating:

  • community group participation
  • a sense of belonging
  • equity of access.

Projects that meet the aims of the program may include:

  • physical infrastructure – new and expanded
  • plant and equipment
  • events to enhance community wellbeing and engagement, including promotional expenses capped at 10% of the grant.
  • training such as first aid, mental health first aid, child safe, cultural awareness and inclusion.

The grants will support projects that can be completed within 12 months. An applicant co-contribution is desirable but not essential. You are encouraged to leverage co-contributions from the Australian Government, or state and local government grants.
