Council’s suite of community support grants is moving online. Council is teaming up with the SmartyGrants software platform with the new electronic application process starting from 1 July 2022. Those new to SmartyGrants are required to establish a username and password before they can commence an application, and Council staff are willing to assist new users with this step. SmartyGrants offers many advantages to users including the ability to attach required documents when submitting the application. Regular grant subscribers may already be familiar with SmartyGrants, and for those that aren’t, Council is willing to meet with community groups and organisations to provide a simple overview of the system. Advice and assistance on applying for Council grants can be obtained by contacting a Community Development Officer (CDO) on 131 872. If necessary, Council staff will meet with applicants at their local library to help explain the online form content.
