Community Funding Program

Liverpool Plains Shire Council's Community Funding Program provides funding to community groups and organisations to encourage and assist them in making a positive, ongoing contribution to our community's wellbeing, cultural life and resilience.

The program encourages and assists individuals and groups in the community to make a positive and ongoing contribution to the community's wellbeing, cultural life and community resilience. 

Funding is provided through the program twice a year. Applications for the two rounds close:

  • 01 May
  • 01 December.

There are three streams of funding:

  • Seed Funding: Seed funding aims to encourage the development of new events in the Liverpool Plains by providing not-for-profit organisations with some initial funding to help support and launch new or one-off event activities. 
  • Growth Funding: Growth Funding is offered to assist event organisers to improve their existing event and build strategic capacity within their event.  Growth Funding aims to ensure existing events continue to expand and prosper.
  • Infrastructure Improvements: The Infrastructure Improvements stream aims to assist event organisers for infrastructure improvements or upgrades that will support the success of an event or organisation.
