Murrindindi Shire Council Grants and Contributions

Murrindindi Shire Council’s Grants and Contributions Program

Council’s Grants and Contributions Program builds on our commitment to support events, activities and projects that align with the objectives outlined in the Council Plan 2017-2021.

In 2020-21, Council is particularly interested in supporting projects that help businesses, industry and communities recover from the impacts of COVID-19.

If you have an initiative in mind, we encourage you to call 5772 0333 to have a chat with one of our Community Wellbeing or Business Support officers, who can provide support as you develop your project and put together your application.
