Community Grants

Strathfield Council is committed to supporting and empowering our local community to deliver  programs and activities that meet the needs of residents. Council’s Community Strategic Plan, Strathfield 2030, strives for community well-being, connectivity, the development of liveable neighbourhoods, prosperity and opportunity.

Council’s Community Grants program provides annual funding for organisations or groups to develop community or cultural programs that support the community of Strathfield in accordance with the Community Strategic Plan – Strathfield 2030.

The award of a grant will be based solely on the information and supporting documents provided in your application.

Community Grants open for application 1 June annually, and close on 31 July 2022.
