The City of Melbourne helps to build strong communities by supporting organisations, programs and services that develop a sense of community in the municipality.
We reviewed our community grant programs to better align with our visions and goals. A full review of the Community Funding Policy 2013–17 was undertaken in 2017. Based on the feedback provided the draft Community Grants and Partnerships Framework was developed.
Community consultation on the draft Framework was conducted during July 2018 and a new Community Grants and Partnerships Framework was adopted in September 2018.
