Community Grants and Funding
20 Feb 2023

Applications are invited from community groups in the Shire for funding to support their programs.

Does your organisation have a local project that needs some extra financial help?

Local organisations and community groups are invited to apply for funding through the Shire of Harvey Grant Funding Program.

The Shire of Harvey Grant Funding Program aims to acknowledge and strengthen the valuable contribution that community groups and organisations make towards the Shire being a vibrant, inclusive and connected community.

There are several types of grants and funding available to the community:

  • Infrastructure Grant - funding to upgrade, extend or construct well planned community and recreation facilities.
  • Arts, Culture and Heritage Grant - funding to support projects that provide opportunities to participate in arts, culture and heritage.
  • Community Events Grant - funding for events run by and for the local community.
  • Partnership Agreements - funding to achieve longer term community development outcomes through strategic partnerships.
  • Alcoa Harvey Sustainability Fund - funding to support a broad range of community development projects, both large and small, that make a positive contribution to the economic, social, recreational or environmental sustainability of the community.
