Council’s Community Strategic Plan, Strathfield 2035, 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 2035.

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