Community Development Grants Program

Arnold Niewand At Horsham Gliding Club

The HRCC Community Development Grants Program helps groups in the Horsham and district community to improve community facilities and work together for more engaged and healthy communities. 

Applications for the 2021 round are now closed. 

Applicants will be advised of the outcome in late April/Early May

For successful applicants:

 Grants of less than $1,000 will be automatically paid to the grant recipient in October 2020.

Grants of $1,000 or more require the following documentation to be forwarded to Council:

  • Substantiation of your group’s expenditure on the project in accordance with the grant application (for example, a copy of a supplier’s invoice to your organisation)
  • An invoice from your organisation to Horsham Rural City Council requesting payment of the grant.  Your organisation’s invoice should not include GST as the contribution is considered a donation under GST law

Please note all donations must be claimed prior to 30 June in the year of allocation

If you have any queries regarding payment of your grant, please contact Karen Maybery, Coordinator General Accounting Unit, on 53829733 or
