Community Grants Program

2020 Annual Grant Round open - closing Monday 9 December 2019 at 9am


The City of Parramatta Council’s Annual Community Grants provide a range of quarterly and annual funding opportunities across the Parramatta Local Government Area. The grants support local not-for-profit community-based groups, organisations, social enterprises, recreation, sports clubs and services and in some cases, individuals with a wide range of services and activities that contribute to the strategic objectives of the City's Community Strategic Plan. The Community Grants Program was awarded in June 2018 to 38 organisations or individuals across a wide and diverse range of activities.

How to apply

All applications for funding grants are completed online through Smarty Grants.

You only need to register once and if you have applied via Smarty Grants previously you can use your existing password and login again.

Planning your projects

Developing a work plan or timeline is an excellent way to achieve a successful project as it records the major milestones for the project and who is responsible for completing them.

Providing such information is a good way to show that your project is well planned and ready to go. To assist you in this process, we have developed a basic sample Project Plan and Work Plan for you to use in the planning and implementation process.
