What is the Community Grants Program?

Through its Strategic Plan, the City of Marion has expressed a strong commitment to the provision of support to its community.

The purpose of the Community Grants Program is to assist local non-profit community groups and organisations to establish and undertake innovative projects or activities that are of benefit to the community and which support Marion's Strategic Directions.

Grants are available to support non-profit groups to develop new projects benefiting the community. No matter how large or small your group is, if you have an idea for a project, then you may be eligible for a grant.
