To provide an equitable and transparent process for Council to provide minor grant funding to individuals, community and sporting groups, and other legal entities.


Policy Information

Where funds are allocated in the City’s annual budget for that purpose, the City of Bunbury will consider applications for minor grant funding up to the value of $500 per application.

Applications for minor grant funding will only be considered if they meet one or more of the criteria below:

  1. Programs or events that provide benefit to the community of Bunbury and take place (majority) within the City of Bunbury;
  2. Small, one off community programs that have not been included in the City’s annual budget or have not received funding through the City's Grant Funding Program (reference Council Policy Grant Funding Program);
  3. Donations for not-for-profit incorporated community groups in the Bunbury region, which may also include individuals who are pursuing sporting, career or cultural activities that provide a benefit to the City of Bunbury.
  4. Applications where two or more members of a club or community group will be attending an event, will require an application to be submitted from the club.

Minor grant funding will not be provided for:

  1. Sponsorship of international communities/individuals;
  2. Political parties or religious groups;
  3. Commercial enterprises or entities;
  4. Applications submitted after the start date of the event/activity.
