Grants Grants

The Fraser Coast Regional Council Grants Program is currently under review.

Council commenced a comprehensive external review of all its Grants Programs to community groups earlier this year. 

The review covers all Council’s grants programs:

  • Community Projects
  • Community Events
  • Regional Events 
  • Community Celebration Events – Christmas, New Year, Australia Day, Anzac  Day
  • Financial Assistance to Sportspersons
  • Sport and Recreation Capital Assistance Fund

Consultation was undertaken with interested parties in March 2018.  The review is nearing completion.

Guidelines for the next round of grants will be available when the grant rounds open - anticipated September 2018.

The opening of this grant round will be advertised on Council’s website, in the Fraser Coast Chronicle and by direct email to all those people/groups registered on Council’s Grants Distribution List.

If you are unsure whether your group is registered on Council’s Grants Distribution List please email with a request to be added.

To ensure that your group receives information that is sent regarding funding opportunities please add the email address to your address book or safe email list.
