The purpose of the Community Partnership Funding Program (CPFP) is for council to work in partnership with the community to achieve council’s priorities.
The program provides up to three-year funding towards operational expenses to not-for-profit organisations that provide facilities or services which support the delivery of council’s corporate priorities and demonstrate broad community benefit.
Applications are now open for the 2017/18 Community Partnership Funding Program, via an Expressions of Interest (EOI) process. Groups who received multi-year funding in 2015 or 2016 do not need to reapply for funding in 2017.
All organisations seeking to establish a new partnership with council are required to complete an EOI by the closing date. Please contact a Grants Development Officer prior to starting an EOI, as all applicants must discuss their proposal with a council category representative.
