The $10 million North East Community Fund gives community groups and organisations the opportunity to deliver exciting new initiatives and projects in Melbourne’s north east, bringing lasting community benefits to areas most impacted by construction.

The fund will improve community connectedness through annual rounds of grants and partnerships funding.

Funding is available to local not-for-profits organisation and community groups and will support a range of community initiatives – from capacity building programs and tree planting initiatives to community art exhibitions, festivals and events.

Applications for the second round of North East Community Fund grants and partnerships are opening soon.
