Community Partnership Program

Is your community group or organisation interested in building connections, cultural learning, promoting mutual respect and partnering with diverse groups on a shared project? 

Be a part of the award-winning Melton City Council Community Partnership Program (CPP)! It supports partnerships between local community groups, organisations and service providers that will benefit the broader community.  We encourage Melton's diverse and under-represented communities, groups and organisations to take part in this program and build their confidence in working together on projects that help their respective community.

The projects and workshops supported by this program will deliver positive social, environmental, and /or economic outcomes by making a positive impact in the community while strengthening social diversity and inclusion in the City of Melton.

The CPP offers the following two streams:

Project Stream
Partnering groups/organisations can apply under this stream to undertake a project that can address a broad range of issues that impact our local community.  If approved, Council will provide relevant resources and support to community groups for the smooth delivery of the project.

Workshops Stream
Partnering groups/organisations can apply under this stream to hold small informal or formal workshops that promote better cultural understanding and awareness in their organisations. This could include workshops that showcase their culture through food, dance, arts and craft, story sharing etc. If approved, these workshops may also receive one-time in-kind venue hire contribution when using Council owned facilities.

Note: Funding caps apply for each of these streams and local residents of Melton must be primary beneficiary of the projects or workshops support under the CPP.
