Community Grants Program

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

  • Better Bayswater Grant

  • Community Events Grant

  • Community Capital Requests

  • Donations

Browse the Community Grants Program brochure.

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

Applicants are welcome to apply for other grants (outside the Community Grants Program), within the same financial year.

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.

Eligibility requires matched funding from the applicant, with the City contributing a maximum of $5,000.

Applications open twice per year in March and October.

Visit the Better Bayswater Grant page for more information.


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.

If your organisation would like apply for a Community Capital funding, please complete a Application Form and submit it to the City before the closing date. Applications are now open and close 4.00pm, Friday 24 January 2020.
