The City of Melbourne is committed to supporting connected and inclusive communities. Connected Communities grants provide funding for projects that support our diverse communities by increasing community connection, social inclusion and access.

Grants are available to schools, not-for-profit community organisations and community groups to support projects in partnership.

Eligibility criteria:

To be eligible to apply for a community grant applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Applicants must be a not-for-profit constituted body or a school. Applications to the Impact Grants stream may be auspiced (meaning an organisation agrees to take legal and financial responsibility for administering the grant on your behalf if you’re not eligible or unable to apply for funding).
  • Organisations must be located within or offer a project within the City of Melbourne municipality. You can view or download the City of Melbourne boundary map.
  • Applications must have a focus on local and / or vulnerable communities.
