The Partnership Grant Program is one of four grant programs that Council delivers to achieve a connected and healthy Yarra Ranges.

The Partnership Grants are a powerful way of responding to local needs and delivering outcomes that Council, on its own, may not be able to provide. It does this through leveraging local knowledge, nurturing networks between stakeholders, and supporting organisations well placed to promote community wellbeing.

To successfully apply to the program, applicants need to be eligible, demonstrate a strong alignment with Council’s adopted strategies, fulfill the selection criteria and demonstrate a willingness to work collaboratively. Grant support is either provided as operational funding, or for specific programs.


Grant Streams

Connected and Healthy: The Connected and Healthy Communities stream supports groups and organisations to deliver projects that contribute to social well being and community involvement.
