Wyndham’s New Medium Community Grants Are Now Open

Wyndham City’s first Medium Grant round is now open for applications from community groups and not-for-profit organisations within the local Wyndham community.

As part of the new Community Grants Program, Medium Grants offer successful applicants up to $15,000 to support initiatives that improve community connectedness, health, wellbeing, the environment and vibrant cultural activities.

Wyndham City Mayor Cr Adele Hegedich said: “We know how important it is for residents to see funding and investment go direct to the local groups and organisations that are making a difference in our community-and this is found within our community groups.”

The Community Grants Program offers simple and broad funding streams, allowing groups the opportunity to develop and lead innovative projects that will further support and strengthen the local Wyndham community.

For groups undertaking smaller activities, the Community Grants Program provides Small Grants on a monthly basis for community projects and events, as well as scholarships for individuals in community leadership, sports, student support and artistic development.

Applications will be assessed based on their ability to align with the Wyndham 2040 Community Vision and council strategies while supporting Wyndham’s ongoing Covid-19 recovery.

“Our incredible community groups are always there to help our city, so we’re thrilled we can invest in them so they can continue their much needed and appreciated work within our community, making our Wyndham 2040 vision come to life by building a stronger, more connected community” Cr Adele Hegedich.

Medium Grant applications close Monday, 16 August 2021.

Wyndham’s new Large Grants program will be open from Monday, 20 September 2021.
