Funding Opportunities

Livingstone Shire Council takes great pride in supporting our local community, community organisations and their activities in a number of ways.

If you are seeking Council's support, please first consider if the Livingstone Community Grants or the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) suit your requirements. 

In addition to the Livingstone Community Grants and the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), there are also a number of non-Council funding sources available to community members and non-profit organisations. See below for a list of useful link to these resources.

If you seek assistance with a large community event, or are requesting sponsorship, please contact our Events and Engagement Team on (07) 4913 5000 to discuss your project and potential request/s.
