Moonee Valley City Council is committed to supporting local community organisations, groups, individuals and businesses to deliver projects and activities that help make Moonee Valley an inclusive, vibrant and connected community. Our Community Grants program offers grants to help build the capacity of our community and to support projects that help us achieve our long-term community vision.

At its meeting held 30 January 2024, Council resolved to request a draft Community Support Policy which set out criteria and processes for the provision of financial support to essential community services. This included organisations that provide critical food, welfare, and emergency assistance for our community.

This draft proposal has now been incorporated into a revised Draft Community Grants Policy, as an additional funding stream named: Extraordinary Community Support Grants. We're now seeking feedback from community on the amendments to the Draft Policy. The draft Policy can be found here, with a table showing the changes available at the bottom of the document.
