Ararat Rural City Council has introduced a fast and easy, one-step application process for community groups to apply for grants under Council’s Community Grants Program.

Community groups seeking a grant or with an idea for a project can apply for a Council grant using one generic application form. There is no longer a need to apply for individual grants programs.

Funding is provided on a dollar-for-dollar basis. In-kind support, as part of the applicant's contribution, should not exceed 25 per cent of the total project cost. In-kind values should be $10 per hour for unskilled labour and $25 per hour for professional/skilled labour as set by State Government guidelines.

Applications are invited at any time of the year, although applications should be submitted before February 15 for March funding allocations, June 15 for July funding and October 15 for November funding.
