Got a small idea that will have a big impact in your local community?
The Off the Ground Community Fund provides financial assistance to residents of the Spreydon and Cashmere Wards who have a small community idea that can make a big difference.
Apply for a grant of up to $300, bring your community together for a project or spontaneous event and get your idea off the ground!
Applications for projects by groups and individuals will be considered. The grant will be paid after the project has happened and receipts have been received.
