Light Regional Council’s Sponsorship, Grants and Incentive Scheme

Light Regional Council’s Sponsorship, Grants and Incentive Scheme is designed to provide an equitable way for individuals and community groups to access Council funding support for activities, events and projects which develop and sustain a vibrant and growing community. Applications are invited for consideration with respect to the following funding categories:

Event Sponsorship Program

Grants are available to support community organisations to deliver events in the Light Council region. Funding of up to $1000 is available for ‘Community’ events while grants of up to $2000 are available for ‘Regional’ events.

Community Development Grant Program

Grants of up to $1000 are available for non-profit groups and organisations to conduct projects and activities which contribute to the development of the community within the Light Regional Council area.

Heritage Incentive Scheme

Grants of up to $1000 are available for owners of Local Heritage Places and Contributory Items to assist in minimising the costs associated with conserving these important properties.

Youth Incentive Scheme

Grants of up to $300 are available for youth displaying considerable talent in cultural, sport and recreation, science, technology, arts and community service activities to enable them to participate in activities to further enhance their skills and talents.  Young people aged between 12 and 18 residing in Light Regional Council are eligible to apply. Budget permitting, the Youth Incentive Scheme is open for applications throughout the year.

Eligibility criteria apply to each funding category offered and details including application forms are available online at www.light.sa.gov.au, by request via email to light@light.sa.gov.au or by phone at 8525 3200.

Applications for Council’s Community Grants Program are now open.

All Grants, Sponsorship and Heritage Incentive Scheme applications and supporting information received by Council must conform with the application requirements and be received by the end of the designated Round. Unsigned applications will be considered ineligible. Successful applications will be determined by Council at its meeting in the month following the end of the designated Round.
