Residents Association Small Grants

Inner West Council’s Residents Association Small Grants Program provides financial assistance to not‐for‐profit residents’ associations who represent local residents on neighbourhood issues and provide opportunities for the local community to come together to discuss what's important to them.

This grant supports the achievement of those community aspirations outlined in the Community Strategic Plan Our Inner West 2036:

  • Outcome 4.1   Everyone feels welcome and connected to the community
  • Strategy 4.1.1 Foster inclusive communities where everyone can participate in community life.

All applications should aim to provide community benefits for the residents of the Inner West Council area. This includes the suburbs of Annandale, Ashfield, Balmain (including Balmain East), Birchgrove, Dobroyd Point, Dulwich Hill, Enmore, Haberfield, Leichhardt, Lewisham, Lilyfield, Marrickville, South Marrickville, Petersham, Rozelle, Stanmore, St Peters, Summer Hill, Sydenham, Tempe. Inner West Council also includes parts of Ashbury, Camperdown, Croydon, Croydon Park, Hurlstone Park and Newtown.


Residents association small grants of up to $750 per association are available annually, up to a maximum total allocation of $7,500 (i.e. a maximum of 10 associations at $750 per association).


Residents Association Small Grants are available on an annual basis. Key dates will be published on Council’s website.

Grant funding will open in late January and applications reported to Council for allocation in March. Funding will be awarded to successful applicants in April to assist associations’ operational expenses over the 2019/2020 financial year.
