Livingstone Community Grants

The Livingstone Community Grants provide funding to community groups and sporting clubs to deliver innovative projects and programmes that increase their capacity and resilience and respond to community needs.

Rounds generally provide up to $5000.00 for not-for-profit community groups and sporting clubs. 

Applicants must meet the eligibility criteria and be operating within the boundary of Livingstone Shire Council's Local Government Area providing programmes or activities that benefit residents, and improve overall community well-being as well as align with the Livingstone Shire Community Plan. 

Round One of the Livingstone Community Grants 21/22 has now closed. Round Two will open in February 2022.
