Socially Active Latrobe Valley

This stream will support projects designed to make our communities vibrant and active places to live. Supported projects may include (but are not limited to) support for environmental groups related to projects that improve the natural environment, new and innovative projects that build social engagement and, projects that improve the capacity of not for profit community organisations.

Socially Active Capacity Building

Social Active Capacity Building grants provide funding for:

  • new and innovative projects that build social engagement and are capable of continuing through self-generated income or other funding sources
  • support for improvement to the organisational capacity of smaller community organisations. This might be in the form of strategic planning, training, financial management, technical improvement or the reduction of energy costs.

Priority will be given to projects from smaller organisations providing critical services to disadvantaged community groups.
