Community Grants


The aim of the Community Grants is to support individuals through recognising individual excellence and support groups and organisations to provide activities, services and events to make Campbelltown an even greater place to live.

Community grants are based on the principles of:

  • Social inclusion: where everyone in the Community can participate, connect and contribute regardless of age, culture or level of ability.
  • Access and Equity: where eligible individuals, community groups and organisations have equal opportunity to access, apply and be considered for the Community Grants Program.
  • Openness and Transparency: where all eligible applications will be fairly assessed by an independent panel and communicated to the Community.
