Community Project Grants

Do you have a program that will build or develop the capacity of the community within Logan City?

The Community Project Grants provide financial assistance to incorporated community organisations or groups to enable the delivery of programs that aim to develop and/or build the capacity of the community within the Logan City Council area.

Objectives

The objectives of the Community Project Grants are to:

  • Enable community-led responses to emerging needs and opportunities
  • Build the capacity of community groups and organisations to acquire funding to support local initiatives
  • Develop positive relationships and partnerships between community groups and organisations
  • Encourage the development of meaningful programs for the community to participate in.

Please note this grant does not provide funds for one-off events.  If you would like the opportunity to submit a sponsorship grant for your one-off community event, please email events@logan.qld.gov.au

Grant types

There are two types of grants available:

IndividualCollaborative
An application under Individual Organisation occurs when a single organisation and/or an agency is primarily responsible for the delivery, implementation and review of the project outlined in the funding application.An application under Collective Partnerships is open to two or more organisations or groups who can clearly demonstrate joint responsibility for the delivery of the project outlined in the funding application. Only one organisation, however, will hold responsibility for receiving and acquitting the funding with Council. Please note, if applying under this funding type, the applicant is required to respond to an additional section in the funding application form.
