Youth grants assist local young people who have excelled in their particular activity (sport, cultural or recreation), through state or national representation. Grant amounts of $200 and $250 are available, depending on their level of representation.
Please read the Youth Grant Guidelines for full eligibility criteria. Any Application for funding that is outside the scope of the guidelines will be assessed by Community Assistance Scheme Committee (CASC) administration in the first instance, with its recommendation and report subsequently presented at the next Council Meeting for a decision.
Youth Grant Applications are assessed quarterly by the CASC administration. Applications must be completed using the Youth Grant application form.
