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 Community Grants program has four available streams:

The Mayoral Community Fund

The Mayoral Community Fund provides funding support to community groups and organisations who want to establish, strengthen or implement projects that align with the Kempsey Shire Council Community Strategic Plan and benefit local residents.

Environmental Levy Grants

Environmental Levy Grants assist volunteer environmental groups with environmental restoration works on public land.

Community Halls Grants

Funding is available via Community Halls Grants for council’s Section 355 hall committees to assist with repairs, maintenance and upgrades to the halls and facilities.

Sporting Grants

Sporting Grants are for local sporting clubs to fund equipment and minor capital works in line with the Council’s Sports Strategy.
