Community Grants

South Eveleigh is committed to making a positive contribution to our community. Grants can play an important role in community development and support active participation within communities. They empower the community to address issues that matter to them and take the lead on projects to enhance community life.

Allocation of community grants for the Financial Year 2019/2020 have now been exhausted.
