Central West Small Grants

Central West Small Grants aim to empower local communities to adapt to adversity and protect or preserve cultural heritage.

This year, there are two programs offering grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 for community groups across the region. These are:

  • Resilient Communities
  • Connection to Country – available to Aboriginal community groups.

Both programs are a great opportunity to fund projects, workshops, events, site enhancements or training. Projects must be delivered in full by 30 April 2023.

Read the guidelines for the Resilient Communities PDF, 84.84 KB and the Connection to Country PDF, 75.68 KB grants to find out more about what type of projects can be funded and who is able to apply.

Funding for these grants is proudly made available by the natural resource management Services - Healthy Landscapes program.
