Introduction

Kempsey Shire Council recognises that many important services across the shire are best supplied by community organisations. We are passionate about supporting not-for-profit organisations as they help to improve life in our shire and the well being of residents.

The Community Grants program is an expansion of the traditional Mayoral Community Fund that aims to increase awareness of grant funded projects, ensure standards for fairness, equity and transparency and increase the capacity for local community organisations to successfully obtain a range of grant funds.

The program offers grant funding to active community groups so they can deliver community led projects in a wide variety of forms that benefit the shire.

The 2021-2022 Grant Round will open in August 2021 with information sessions taking place in July. Updates will be provided to exact dates as soon as they become available.
