Grants and funding

The Community Investment and Support Fund (CISF) offers a variety of grant programs for groups and organisations to undertake projects that benefit the local community.

This will help achieve the Greater Geelong region’s 30-year community led vision for a Clever and Creative Future.

The Clever and Creative Future vision is about developing a consistent approach to get things done and collaborating to create opportunities that address our challenges. This approach will assist in achieving the elements of a successful community.
