Grants & Funding

We are excited to announce that Townsville City Council will be rolling out our new Grants and Partnership program from 30 January 2019.

Informed by an external consultant, Council has been developing the new program using a process of bench-marking and community collaboration. We are proud to say that 40 community organisations provided feedback to help design our amazing new program.

With a focus on developing, supporting and building our community, we will be offering three main grant categories:

New Grants Programs include Economic Grants, Social Grants and Environmental Grants

For smaller requests, grant applicants will also be able to apply to the Mayor or seek the support of any Councillor as part of this program. Council will also continue to offer the Regional Arts Development Fund, in partnership with Arts Queensland.

The new program will offer:

  • Streamlined and simplified processes.
  • Faster assessment timeframes.
  • Clear and easy application forms.
  • New software from SmartyGrants.

Our team is currently hard at work continuing to design the final details of this exciting new program however the following grants are still currently open:
