Community grants are available once a year for not-for-profit, community focused groups in Latrobe City for projects that will assist in the ongoing development or maintenance of recreational facilities; and meet the social and cultural needs of the citizens of Latrobe City. These grants are not intended to fully fund projects; groups should demonstrate their commitment to the project either financially or with in-kind support.
