Small Change Grants Program for Young People

Council recognises and values the contribution that young people bring to the Byron Shire community with their energy, ideas, perspectives and liveliness.

The aim of the grants program is to provide a voice for young people, encourage them to participate, and gain experience in leadership roles.

Young people aged between 15 and 25 are invited to apply for a small grant to help fund a project that will benefit young people in Byron Shire.  They need to be supported (auspiced) by an organisation, must live and deliver the project in the Byron Shire.

When is funding available?

Council calls for applications in early September each year. Applicants have a month to lodge their forms with Council. 

Further details will be posted on Council's website when applications are open.
