Enable...

communities to help themselves

The programs under our Enable theme focus on supporting communities to build, repair or enhance facilities, develop the skills and build the capacity and capability necessary to enhance the lives of those living and working in the local area.

These grants tend to have a broad reach. As you can see from the list below, some target particular groups within the community, such as the elderly, while others target particular needs within communities, like art and culture.

Our flagship Small Grants for Rural Communities program is the broadest. Note that some projects could fit into more than one category.

Specific details about each program can be found their respective pages. For all programs, please read the information and program guidelines carefully and lodge an application to the one you feel is most appropriate, rather than make multiple applications.
