Funding and Grants

Richmond Valley Council is keen to see organisations in the Richmond Valley successfully tender for, receive and acquit funding from external third parties.

Council is available to assist community organisations and individuals with searching for suitable grants, advice on the application process and letters of support. Staff may also be available to read over and provide comment on applications prior to submission. Please note that it is not possible or appropriate for staff to write funding submissions for other organisations.

For grant writing tips and a step-by-step guide please refer to the sections below.
