Isaac Regional Council is committed to assisting local not for profit community groups and organisations by providing community grants in an equitable and accountable manner. In order to ensure community assistance will benefit the region and our residents, Council has developed a Community Grants Policy and application process.

The Isaac Community Grants program funds local projects, events and activities which help develop resilient, adaptive and vibrant communities while contributing to the social wellbeing of its residents, workers and visitors.
