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.

All information, including the grant guidelines, budget template, application checklist and details about event road closures are available on our Speak Up page.

Categories for Isaac Community Grants include:

  • Minor or Major Grants
  • Individual or Team Development Grants
  • School Bursaries

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.
