Applications are now open for the Small Project Grants 2019/2020 round. 

Our Small Project Grants are quick response grants for community groups and artists running projects in Yarra.

Council will invest $75,000 into community programs, events and artistic projects through the 2019/2020 Small Project Grant Program.

Applicants may receive one Small Project Grant per financial year. Applications are accepted for amounts between $100 and $1,000.

Please Note: Unfortunately, as all the funds in the funding pool for the Arts and Culture category of Yarra's Small Project Grants 2019/2020 have been allocated, we are no longer able to take Arts and Culture Small Project Grants in this round.
