  • support and improve the community’s health and wellbeing,
  • support life-long learning,
  • encourage sustainable living,
  • promote Brimbank as a destination, and
  • build capacity through partnerships and networks. 

The Brimbank Community Grants Program funding period is for projects, events, and festivals that take place between November 2018 – October 2019.
