Community Funding and Grants Consultation

Council is reviewing the Community Grants Program. The review will assess each of Council’s community funding-related policies and propose improvements for the future. 

We are seeking feedback from:

  • grant applicants and recipients about their experience
  • those who have not applied for grants and any barriers that have stopped them.


The City of Greater Dandenong provides financial assistance in the form of grants and donations to community groups and individuals for activities to benefit residents. 

Each year Council allocates significant funds in the budget to the provision of funding to the community. In 2022-23, $2.5 million will be distributed to the community through a range of grants programs to support the Council to meet its community vision and objectives.

The review will assess current policies and propose improvements for the future.

Read the current Community Grants Program Policies and Guidelines.
