What's it all about?

The Empowering Communities Project is a unique opportunity for a community project, activity, or initiative to receive funding. If you had an idea, you may have been eligible for funding from as little as $1,000 to as high as $100,000!

Empowering Communities funding aims to support community designed and delivered initiatives that take an innovative approach to address local issues around community safety, connection, access and support.

Access, Connection , Safety, Support. We want to hear from you!

Who could apply?

ANYONE or ANY ORGANISATION with an idea that will help make Greater Shepparton a better place! If you aren't with an organisation or if you have an idea but don't want to run a project... THAT'S OK!

The Empowering Communities Project has an Action Group that will assist in matching you or your idea with an organisation that can help bring your idea to life!
