Community Grants Program

The SDPPA bi-annual grants opening and closing dates are announced in The Village Pump, as well as Facebook pages of The Village Pump and the SDPPA. The application form will be accessible for one month from the grant opening date. Grant applications are not accepted outside the grant round dates. To assess eligibility, please refer to the Grants Guidelines (PDF) information and ensure you have all relevant documentation ready to complete your application.

Apply for a grant

It is a requirement that all grant funding be used strictly for the purpose stated in the original application and each successful applicant must complete the grant acquittal process within 12 months of receiving the funds. Grants are provided for special requirements or projects and are not provided for ongoing operating costs. Preference is given to volunteer-run incorporated associations that have not received a grant in the last two years.

Successful applicants will be notified individually and a notice will also appear in The Village Pump.
