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.

Applicants are required to read the Isaac Community Grants Guidelines (PDF, 1.19MB)  before proceeding with their application.

Categories for Isaac Community Grants include:

Grants will be assessed across a number of categories and applicants are encouraged to think about how their project, event or activity will benefit the people and community of the region, and what outcomes it will provide.

Minor Grant applications are open year-round and are assessed on a per needs basis and applications must be received at least 4 weeks before to the project, event or activity date.

Major Grant applications are assessed in three rounds through the financial year as per the table below.
