Partnership Grant


Partnership Grants are designed to aid the initiation of programs that clearly identify a need and embrace the principles of social justice, healthy living, lifelong learning, environmental sustainability, community safety and inclusion.

Applications for Partnership Grants are sought from established organisations with a proven track record in the provision of quality programs and services.  These organisations must be able to provide evidence of the need for the project and to substantiate the applicant’s capacity to resource and deliver programs which:

  • Are not a duplication of an existing service.
  • Are new, innovative and strengthen community wellbeing.
  • Encourage inclusion and accessibility to their service.
  • Are of benefit and provide valuable support to the Hume Community.

Funding will be for a period of up to three years. To meet the criteria for second-year funding, applicants will demonstrate how the project’s first year has met the milestones outlined in the project plan and demonstrates the need for additional funding.

An agreement document for Partnership Grant will specify that recipients must abide by the terms and conditions to receive funding for year two and year three where appropriate.


Applicants must:

  • Discuss their proposal with Council’s Community Grants Officer by calling 9205 2200 prior to submission.
  • Be an incorporated not-for-profit community group or organisation.
  • Run the activity or project from a location within Hume and/or show that it will substantially benefit residents of Hume City.
  • Have no outstanding debts with Hume City Council.
  • Have satisfactorily acquitted previous funding received by Hume City Council.
  • Engage with Council in the design of their project.

*Hume Neighbourhood House and Learning Centres are not eligible to apply.
