The Town provides grants for projects that build the well being and capacity of the Town of Victoria Park community. The level of funding may be as small as a few dollars, ranging up to $10,000.
The value of in-kind requests, such as the waiving of the Town's fees for venue hire, ranger services, waste management, marketing and promotion, is calculated in the total grant amount.
The level of grant funding awarded may differ from the amount requested and will depend upon the extent to which the funded project contributes toward the desired outcomes.
