The Connected Communities program is a Bendigo Bank initiative that aims to assist in providing grants for projects that will enhance the prosperity of a broad range of local not for profit community organisations who can clearly demonstrate the social benefits of their project for their own members and/or the broader Ballarat community.

Ballarat Connected Communities preferred level of funding will be capped at $5,000 per organisation for community projects. Funding above $5,000 will be considered on a case-by-case basis and presented to the BCC Board for approval.

In addition, Ballarat Connected Communities will offer up to 10 additional grants capped at $1,000 each to assist organisations (not-for-profit or community groups) affected by COVID-19 in the August 2020 round of grants.

Applications close on Monday 17th August 2020.
