Can I apply for more than one grant?

If I apply now, can I apply again later?
Whether you are successful or not, you will be eligible to apply for all future rounds of grants.
Do I need to be a Fort Largs resident to apply?

What are some examples of how the funds could be used?
If your current resources need upgrading, you could buy new books or sports equipment. If you'd like to enhance your learning, the funds could support a workshop or training clinic. If you've got a great new idea that you'd like to get up and running, for example a new walking group, the grant could assist with purchasing hats and sunscreen. Or if you have a great community event coming up but need some extra support, this could be what you've been waiting for.
What criteria must the application meet?
The project should benefit the local community in any of the following ways:
- Active, inclusive and safe
- Well connected
- Environmentally serviced
- Well designed and built
How will each application be assessed?
Each grant request is carefully assessed and judged on its own merits, based on the guidelines included as part of the Fort Largs Community Grants application form.
When will successful applicants be notified?
The current round of grants will close on Friday 15th December 2023 at 5pm ACST. All applicants will be notified of the outcome by the Friday 12th January 2024.
When will the next round of grants open?
The opening of a new grant round will be communicated via our email communications and social media channels.
