Community Events Grant Program



Applications are now being invited from the community for Indigo Shire’s 2021-2022 Community Events Grant Program. 

A total of $15,000 is available for Community Events and successful grants will range from $200 to $2,000.

How to apply

Indigo Shire Council is again using Smartygrants, an online grants administration system to manage and streamline the application process.

It is through this online portal that applications and all supporting documentation will be submitted, processed, and acquitted. 

If you applied for the program last year, you can use your existing Smartygrants login. If you are a new applicant, you can create a Smartygrants account here: Indigo Shire Smartygrants. From there, you will be able to access the application forms.

If for any reason you need assistance with submitting online, please contact the Community Development Team on 1300 365 003 or email

Please note that if you need a paper copy of the application form you can download it below, or collect a copy from Customer Service locations across the Shire.
