Return of Council’s Community Grants and Sponsorship Program


Get ready for the return of Redland City Council’s Community Grants and Sponsorship Program as it resets for the 2021/22 financial year.

Mayor Karen Williams said she welcomed the return of the regular grants and sponsorship program for 2021-22, following an 18-month redirection of funds to COVID-19 relief and recovery grants.

“We recently announced the recipients of pandemic-related grants, supporting community organisations to recover from disruptions with Organisation Support (Sustainability) and Capital Infrastructure (Maintenance) grants,” Cr Williams said.

“Council has endeavoured to be flexible to help community and sporting organisations navigate the pandemic and has received some very positive feedback from beneficiaries, including Hot Shots Skipping, Rotary Club of Redlands Bayside and Blues Union Netball Club.

“It is now time to return our focus and funding back to Council’s regular Grants and Sponsorship Program.

“I understand many community organisations and event organisers have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of the dates for the 2021-2022 funding rounds.

“We will start with Round 1 of Community Grants, with applications for the categories of Project Support, Organisation Support and Conservation being accepted from Monday 19 July until 16 August 2021.

“This will be immediately followed by Round 1 for Sponsorship, from 16 August to 13 September 2021, at which time the single round of the Capital Infrastructure Grants will open until 11 October 2021.

“A second round for both Community Grants and Sponsorship will open in the second half of the financial year.

“I encourage all those interested in applying for funding to visit Council’s webpage redland.qld.gov.au/grants for eligibility criteria and guidelines, with applications accepted online via SmartyGrants only.

“Apply for a grant or sponsorship today and help invest in your community tomorrow.”
