The $10 million North East Community Fund will give community groups and organisations the opportunity to deliver exciting new initiatives and projects in Melbourne’s north east.

Applications are now open for the first round of funding with community groups, not-for-profits, sports clubs and schools among those able to apply for grants of up to $100,000 for local projects.

Projects could include tree planting, support for local events and festivals, new sports equipment, community art initiatives or community playgroups.

From Bulleen and Heidelberg to Yallambie and other suburbs across the north east, the Fund will support projects big and small, bringing lasting community benefit to areas most impacted by construction.

Applications for the first round of funding are open now and close at 11.59pm Sunday 21 August 2022.
