Emergency grant funding is available for Sunshine Coast projects which have come about as a consequence of failure, damage or loss of essential equipment or infrastructure due to unforeseen circumstances. The failure of the equipment must be:

  • deemed to be an “emergency”
  • significantly impact on the organisation’s ability to continue to operate.

Applicants can apply for funding up to $2,000. Quotes are required for items over $500.

Projects may start immediately, but applicants need to be aware that funding is very competitive and council cannot guarantee that the application will be successful.

Projects that are covered by insurance are not eligible for Emergency Grant Funding.
