Contestable Grants Fund

​​​​​The Contestable Grants Fund is a new fund introduced by the Council to assist in the vision of becoming a thriving, connected and resilient Grey District. Applications are called for each year in July/ August.


Applicants who have applied to the 2020 funding round will be advised if their application was successful in early November​ 2020.​

There has been $20,000 alloc​ated from Council for this fund. 

The grant applications will need to align with Council’s vision and outcomes, which have been updated following community engagement undertaken between February and June this year 

Council asked the community what was wanted and needed to be Our I​deal Grey DistrictWe received over 500 comments, ideas and advice from meetings, pop-ups, school visits, adverts and discussions.  

We also looked at the 2019 Resident Satisfaction Survey information and have put this all together for these big, bold, and truly au​thentic Grey District Vision and Outcomes.
