Community Grants

The City of Hobart provides grants for community groups and non-profit organisations to develop projects or events, or specific elements of ongoing programs, that foster opportunities for access and participation, and for responding to community issues and concerns.

To apply, you must review relevant guidelines for program objectives, eligibility information and assessment criteria.

All applications are assessed against the assessment criteria. It is important to note that meeting all criteria does not guarantee that an application will be successful.
