Grant Writing Workshops and Support

Due to concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic, Hume City Council advises all face-to-face events, programs and workshops will be cancelled/ postponed until further notice. While this was a very difficult decision to make, the health and safety of our community is our number one priority.

In response, Council ran an interactive Q&A session on Facebook on Tuesday 28 April. To view this video and read through the questions answers, click here.

Whilst we will not be holding grant writing workshops we will still be offering a limited number of individual support sessions. These will be held over the phone and will help you to complete your application online.
