Community Grants Funding Program Maroondah City Council

23 April 2019 - Posted by Jo Fairy


To all RDCA clubs within  Maroondah City Council, an opportunity exists to secure grant funds - Our association sponsor, Grant Professionals are on hand to assist with an application on your behalf.  Please take the time to read and consider contacting Rob and his team to establish if this is applicable to you.

Maroondah City Council Sporting Clubs

Localities of: Bayswater North, Croydon, Croydon Hills, Croydon North, Croydon South, Heathmont, Kilsyth (part), Kilsyth South, Park Orchards (part), Ringwood, Ringwood East, Ringwood North (part), Vermont (part), Warranwood and Wonga Park (part).

There are two categories that can be applied for (and the gist of the grant is that council will support you with some funding for any project that benefits the community .. but needs to be a little outside of your normal activities – previous recipients attached to give you an idea of what is funded):

  1. The Community Development Grants Scheme
  • For projects that look to increase participation encourage volunteering, provide leadership opportunities, or increase learning and skill development.
  • For new initiatives, or the expansion of an existing service, that will address a clearly identified community need and contribute to improved wellbeing.
  • For community support funding required to provide help, advice or support to a specific population group who share a common experience.
  • There is no limit to the grant amount request. However, it needs to be reasonable.
  1. The Small Equipment Grants Scheme
  • This scheme is for requests of $500.00 or less to cover small equipment purchases, printing or administration costs.


New building projects, capital works requests, or facility maintenance projects are ineligible.

If you have an idea, give us an email or a call if makes it easier. Once you have an idea and before applying, we will firstly liaise with Council to ensure the idea hits the mark and get some feedback on the application.Grant Closes: Monday 29th April so please let us know before then(and apologies for any potential later communication of this grant than we would have liked).


Best Regards
