Applicant Eligibility

* indicates a required field.

Emergency grant funding is available for Sunshine Coast Local Government Area projects which have come about as a consequence of failure, damage or loss of essential equipment or infrastructure due to unforeseen circumstances.

The incident must be:

  • deemed to be an “emergency”
  • significantly impact on the organisation’s ability to continue to operate.

Applicants can apply for funding up to $2,000. Quotes are required for all items over $500.

Projects may start immediately, but applicants need to be aware that funding is very competitive and council cannot guarantee that the application will be successful.

Projects that are covered by insurance are not eligible for Emergency Grant Funding.

Note: Projects that are not deemed an emergency or are considered standard or regular maintenance may be eligible to apply for a Community Grant in the next Minor or Major grant round. Contact the Grants Team for more information on 5420 8616.

Before you start this application, it is important to read the Community Grant Guidelines and Emergency Grant Fact Sheet.


Please ensure your organisation name is the same as the name on your ABN Lookup (on p.7)
