The grants program is aligned with the objectives of the Greater Shepparton Council Plan, to support established and emerging communities through activities, programs and events that contribute to community strengthening and bring a wide range of social and economic returns to the municipality.
There are two main grant rounds available for Council grants each year (note that some grants have different closing dates, so please visit their individual pages listed below to find out more).
