Minor Capital Works and Facilities Grants

Grants are available to support projects that focus on maintaining and improving council assets and provide increased opportunities for the community to be involved in sport and recreation activities.

A Minor Capital Works and Facilities Grant is for a fixture (permanent and cannot be removed from the premises) that is constructed or upgraded to improve or extend the life of the facility, such as shade structures, scoreboards, BBQ areas, storage sheds and skylights.
