Pure people power is set to ignite through the Isaac Community Grants program, helping to energise local communities.

To help the region’s social, sporting and cultural fabric through a cautionary COVID-19 period, the grants powered by Isaac Regional Council have been re-instated.

Mayor Anne Baker said building and supporting the region’s resilience is key through uncertain times.

“Isaac Community Grants fund local projects, events and activities that help develop resilient, adaptive and vibrant communities while it contributes to the social well-being of our residents, workers and visitors,” Mayor Baker said.

“Council has reactivated this program as part of our regional vision and strategic community plan as Isaac not-for-profit and community organisations return to business-as-usual activities, all while adhering to COVID Safe practices.

“Many of these organisations rely on volunteers and ongoing community support to deliver events and activities for the enjoyment of residents and visitors especially in these unprecedented times.

“They are another example of the pure people power which drives our local communities and make the Isaac such a great place to live.”

There are four categories for funding and applicants are encouraged to think about how their project, event or activity will benefit the people and community of the region, and what outcomes it will provide.

Applicants are required to head to https://speakup.isaac.qld.gov.au and read the Isaac Community Grants Guidelines before proceeding with their application through the following categories:

  • Minor or Major Grants – for community events and activities including exceptional circumstances for out of round applications
  • Individual or Team Development Grants
  • School Bursaries
