Projects may be focused on general community activity or services/activities for specific groups. However all projects must clearly be benefiting those who live within part or all of the area of benefit.

Awards can support a wide range of costs and activities including equipment costs, running costs for local groups, staff or sessional worker costs, consultations, maintenance or refurbishment of community facilities.
