At the Council meeting held on 26 April 2021, Councillors approved the list of successful community grant applications for 2021/2022.

Successful grant applications

Thank you to all groups who submitted applications.  There was a total of 73 applications received requesting grants of $328,326. The successful applications received total grant funding of $185,078

Grant applicants (both successful and unsuccessful) will be formally notified of outcomes in early May.

Successful applicants can claim their grant allocation from 1 July 2021.  Please refer below for information about claiming your grant.

Please note that if your project/event is impacted by COVID-19 and you need to cancel, change or postpone your project, please contact Susan Surridge Co-ordinator Community Relations and Advocacy on 53829776

For successful applicants:

Grants of less than $1,000 will be automatically paid to the grant recipient in October 2021.

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
  • A Completion Report (refer below)

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

Completion Reports

In accordance with the Community Development Grant Guidelines, all successful applicants are required to complete a Community Grants Project Report upon completion of their project.  This should be returned to Council as soon as possible following the completion of your project or with your claim for payment.
