Community grants

Brisbane City Council's community grant programs help fund local non-profit community groups. This funding helps to develop and improve community facilities and services in Brisbane. Grants can help meet the housing and social needs of people experiencing homelessness, support Men's Shed groups, help community groups facing financial hardship, increase community identity and social inclusion, increase participation in sport and recreation or improve access and inclusion in Brisbane.
