Community Partnership Grants Scheme

This program's aim is to support projects and activities that contribute to the development of local communities or to the Kangaroo Island community as a whole.

The Community Partnerships Grant Scheme (CPGS) is designed to provide the support that is needed to complete a project, or to encourage the development of projects (in the case of multi-staged projects).


There is recognised value of the CPGS for the community and for Kangaroo Island Council.  Applications that demonstrate a high level of input by the applicant will be received well, for instance, the supply of volunteer labour and materials.

The CPGS 2017-18 funding round has now closed. Successful applicants will be announced soon.
