City of Bayswater Community Grants Program

The City of Bayswater's Community Grants Program is made up of four funding streams:

  • Better Bayswater Grants

  • Community Capital Requests

  • Community Events Grants

  • Donations

Applicants may apply for one of the four funding streams per financial year.

The Community Grants Program funding streams are separate to other funding the City provides i.e. in-kind support for town centre events, seed funding for town centre events, fee waivers (as approved by Council) etc. Applicants are welcome to apply for other grants (outside the Community Grants Program), within the same financial year.

See links below for more information on each funding stream.

Better Bayswater Grant

The Better Bayswater Grant offers local groups and non-profit organisations the opportunity to apply for funding to help projects that contribute to the City's vision of creating a strong and cohesive community.

For more information, contact the Community Development team on (08) 9270 4122.

Community Capital Requests

The Community Capital Program offers grant funding to support established community not-for-profit organisations, who are seeking funding to improve their facilities and infrastructure. Priority is given to projects valued between $5,000 and $20,000 that are supported with a proven financial contribution from the applicant, and provide tangible benefits for the local community.

For more information, contact the Project Services team on (08) 9272 0612.

Community Events Grant

The Community Events grant is a source of funding available to local groups or organisations who want to plan an event that will benefit their community.

The City values and strives to provide opportunities to partner with the community to deliver positive community outcomes which are consistent with, and complement, the City's strategic vision. The City encourages and supports the Community Events Grant funding to innovatively respond to social disadvantage, protection of the natural or built environment, partnerships, community development and capacity building.
