Project Update

Why are we revising our Community Grants Policy?

We are revising and strengthening our Community Grant Policy to reflect the feedback we received from our community during a review of the Community Grants Program.

In particular, we want to make sure our new Draft Policy:

  • Aligns with our Council Plan and Community Vision.
  • Provides streamlined grant categories.
  • Provides a clearer administrative process.

What is the purpose of the draft Policy?

The Draft Community Grants Policy sets out the process for the development and administration of the Community Grants Program, including assessment, approval and funding conditions.

This Draft Policy applies to all requests for funding submitted through the Community Grants by Frankston-based individuals and not-for-profit community groups and organisations.

The Draft Policy outlines the roles and responsibilities of Community Grants applicants and recipients in our administration and approval process.
