Community Grant Workshops and Hawkesbury Community Learning Hub June 20

Hawkesbury City Council has created an online resource for current grant opportunities on Your Hawkesbury – Your Say. The page is constantly updated with new grant opportunities for the Hawkesbury community and includes brief grant descriptions, funding amounts, who can apply, and application closing dates. This is not an exhaustive list, but it is a good starting point for researching grant opportunities for individuals, community groups, and organizations. You can find the page by visiting www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au/cg

Workshop Grants

Hawkesbury City Council has now successfully completed a series of three-part Community Grants Workshops across Hawkesbury. We would like to thank all the individuals and community organizations who participated for their enthusiasm and positive engagement.

If you or your organization missed these workshops, you can find workshop recordings and presentation slides on the Community Grants and Support page at www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au/cg

This is an excellent resource to refer to when applying for grants in the future, either within your community group or organization, or as a collaborative project application with other community groups or organizations. The workshops presented to the community were:

  • Grant Deepening Workshop

Melanie Trethowan explains the grant writing process in language non-granted writers can understand. This helps potential applicants make a clear decision about whether a specific grant program is right for their project.

  • Carefree! Preparing your project for start-up

Rather than sitting back and waiting for the perfect grant program to fall on you, start working now! Learn how to prepare a detailed project brief, what information to gather and what attachments you will need. Start thinking strategically – who you might partner with, how to be innovative and clear about where your project fits into your group’s long-term plans. Get your ducks lined up now!

  • Management of your project and acknowledgments

What happens once your application has been accepted? What are the key things you need to monitor during project deployment? What are milestones and why are they important? How to manage the money? What if things go wrong? Everything you need to know to ensure your project is delivered on time and on budget.
