Inner west community groups could receive up to $100,000 through a West Gate Neighbourhood Fund – Grants.

The West Gate Neighbourhood Fund is a Victorian Government initiative designed to bring people together and support Melbourne’s inner west while the West Gate Tunnel Project is built.

West Gate Neighbourhood Fund – Grants are available to incorporated not-for-profit groups that are based, or operate, within the Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay council areas.

Funding is available in three streams:

Connecting neighbourhoods grants – Up to $10,000 for a one-off project or activity

Celebrating neighbourhoods grants – Up to $20,000 for festivals, events and installations

Transforming neighbourhood grants – From $20,001 to $100,000 for improvements to local community facilities

We are looking for projects that celebrate heritage, history or diversity, focus on arts and culture, emphasise learning and development, or enable greater participation of community members.

Grant applications are open from 7 May to 18 June 2021.

Apply now via the West Gate Neighbourhood Fund - Grants webpage.
