Major Community Grants The Major Community Grants Program was established in 2008-09 to provide funding support to not for profit Northern Territory based organisations for community development and improvement purposes. The maximum grant available for each project is $200,000. In 2013-14, five organisations were funded a total of $260,000 as follows: Yulara Ayers Rock Lion Club Inc received funding of $162,000 to construct a community park and playground; Groote Eylandt & Milyakburra Youth Development Unit Inc received $28,000 for the Sharing Knowledge Sharing time project ; Alawa Aboriginal Corporation received funding of $25,000 for the Minyerri football oval water supply project; InCite Youth Arts Incorporated received funding of $25,000 for the InCite / Warlpiri Youth Development Aboriginal Corporation Community Development Program; and The Genealogical Society of the Northern Territory Inc received funding of $20,000 to purchase a ScanPro 3000 and additional software to fast track research and enhance networking and distribution of historical data. Community Organisation Grants (small grants) Community Organisation grants are available to support projects which have the potential to improve the wellbeing and lifestyle of Territorians. Funding for a wide range of purposes may be provided to eligible not for profit Territory based community organisations. Funding is generally limited to amounts of $5,000 or less, although higher amounts may be approved under specified conditions outlined in the grant guidelines. Funding is provided for non-recurrent expenditure and is available only for clearly identified projects which can be completed within specified time frames. Greater consideration is given to priority issues such as level of existing community support and circumstances such as remoteness or high levels of socio-economic disadvantage. Preference is also given to requests for lower value amounts. This combined approach allows for an equitable distribution of available funds throughout the Northern Territory to as many worthwhile projects as possible.
