While the Tatiara District Council does not operate a formal grants program it may distribute funding to community groups following direct application to the Council.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.

Grants < $750, Council will decide monthly at its monthly Council Meetings.

Grant >$750, will be decided in two funding rounds per year; at the July and January Council meetings.  Closing dates are as follows:

  • Round 1 - mid June
  • Round 2 - mid December
  • Round 3 - if after Round 2, funds remain unallocated, a 3rd round may be offered to the Community.  This 3rd round will be held in April of that year.  Contact Council in February/March to ascertain whether the additional 3rd round will be offered.

There are two funding streams:

  1. Funding Stream 2:  Events & Festivals - maximum $2,000
  2. Funding Stream 3:  Recreational Facilities Upgrade - maximum $10,000
