Community Investment Program


Randwick City Council is committed to empowering our local individuals, community groups and community organisations by providing targeted financial assistance to ideas, initiatives and services which are needs based, inclusive, impactful and create a 'sense of community'. 


The Community Investment Program is Council’s grants and awards program which provides nearly a million dollars worth of grants to local community initiatives each year.

Since 2009, Council has proudly supported local community initiatives through various grants, donations and subsidy programs. The Community Investment Program has been developed with four investment streams. In addition to simplifying the process, the new program supports a broader range of initiatives.
