Community grants provide an opportunity for the groups and individuals to build the capacity and wellbeing of Town of Victoria Park community. The objectives of a community grant align with the Town's Strategic Community Plan. Specifically, a community grant should promote sustainable, connected, safe, and diverse places for everyone.  

The aims of the Town's community grants program are to: 

  • complement and achieve the Town of Victoria Park's strategic objectives; 
  • Provide financial assistance to the community to develop and implement projects, activities and programs that enhance the wellbeing of the community; 
  • strengthen local community capacity and cohesion through capitalising on the strengths and abilities of the community to effectively identify its own needs and to plan, develop and implement innovative solutions; 
  • facilitate fair, transparent and equitable distribution of community resources and programs through the Town; and
  • increase participation and accessibility to a range of quality and innovative programs and activities for the residents of the Town.
